Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 came into effect on 1 January 2005.  The Act places a number of obligations on public authorities about the way in which they provide information and creates a duty to provide advice or assistance to anyone seeking information.

The Bank is designated as a public authority and falls within scope of the Act except in respect of certain excluded functions which are specified as:

  • monetary policy
  • financial operations intended to support financial institutions for the purposes of maintaining stability
  • the provision of private banking services and related services
