The Freedom of Information (FOI) Law was 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. Whilst the Human Rights Commission is not a public authority, they are committed to openness, transparency and serving the public interest in compliance with the Freedom of Information Law, 2007.

As in accordance with s. 5 of the Freedom of Information Law, the Human Rights Commission has adopted and maintains a publication scheme. The main purpose of a publication scheme is to make information readily available without the need for specific written requests. Schemes are intended to encourage the publication of material proactively, and develop a greater culture of openness.
