FOIMan examines the similarities and differences between FOIA and the Environmental Information Regulations.
A few months ago I started a series in PDP’s Freedom of Information Journal on the Environmental Information Regulations (EIRs), starting with an examination of the definition of environmental information. Here I bring you the second instalment in the series which looks at how FOIA and the EIRs differ.
I’ve just written the third and final part in the series which covers the exceptions in the EIRs. You’ll be able to read that in the next issue of the journal or right here on the FOIMan site later in the summer. Once they’re all available, I’ll put them all in one place in the Resources section so they will act as a comprehensive guide to the EIRs.
