7. Freedom of Information
We publish FOI information on our website and have adopted the Information Commissioner's own standard publication scheme.
Publication of all reports appear on our website and is an important part of holding COPFS accountable to the Law Officers, victims, witnesses and the public at large.
During the period to the end of May 2013, nine Freedom of Information requests were made under the act for information and these were all dealt with within the appropriate statutory time limit.
As stated in last year's report the Public Records (Scotland) Act 2011 came into force and a publication scheme complying with the new requirements will be published shortly.
