New toolkit from the ICO
Self-assessment for handling vexatious requests


The Information Commissioner's Office has launched a new topic in its Freedom of Information (FOI) toolkit to enable public authorities to self-assess how they deal with vexatious requests. The FOI Act includes a provision that does not oblige a public authority to comply with a request for information if it is vexatious. Used correctly, it balances transparency and the protection of resources. The toolkit forms part of a growing suite of resources developed as part of the ICO25 commitment to improving FOI services.
