A qualification for people responsible for implementing the Freedom of Information Act in their organisation has been launched by the BCS Information Systems Examinations Board.

The certificate in freedom of information is aimed both at people experienced in the issues and at newcomers.

As well as explaining the act in its wider context, the BCS said the course covers the mechanism for publishing before a request for information, exemptions to access, the public interest test and enforcement procedures. Those gaining the certificate will be able to identify information likely to be requested, develop procedures for processing and monitoring a request, and explain the philosophy of freedom of information and the right of access to public authority information.

The first accredited trainer is law firm Pinsent Masons.
