As a public authority, the General Registry is committed to openness, transparency and serving the public interest in compliance with the Freedom of Information Law, 2007.
The Freedom of Information Law was first passed on 19th October 2007 and came into effect in January 2009. It gives the public a right of access to all types of records held by public authorities but also sets out some exemptions from that right.
Please refer to Freedom of Information Law (2018 Revision) for more information. This revision replaces the 2015 Revision which should now be discarded.
Each public authority covered by the Freedom of Information Law has a legal duty to adopt and maintain a publication scheme in accordance with s. 5 of the FOI Law.
The purpose of a publication scheme is to make information readily available to the public without the need for specific written requests. Schemes
