Leis an tAcht um Shaoráil Faisnéise, 2014, tugtar an ceart do dhuine den phobal faisnéis atá ag comhlachtaí poiblí a iarraidh.  



Daingníonn an tAcht um Shaoráil Faisnéise, 2014 trí cheart dhlíthiúla a bhunaigh a dhá réamhtheachtaí (an tAcht um Shaoráil Faisnéise 1997 agus an tAcht um Shaoráil Faisnéise (Leasú) 2003):

  • tá gach duine i dteideal a iarraidh go leasófar faisnéis oifigiúil a bhaineann leo i gcás go bhfuil an fhaisnéis sin neamhiomlán, mícheart nó míthreorach
  • tá gach duine i dteideal rochtain a fháil ar fhaisnéis atá i seilbh comhlachtaí poiblí
  • tá gach duine i dteideal na cúiseanna le cinntí a raibh éifeacht acu orthu a fháil amach 


Deirtear sna hAchtanna go bhfuil daoine i dteideal rochtain a fháil ar fhaisnéis oifigiúil, a mhéid is mó is féidir i gcomhréir le leas an phobail agus leis an gceart chun príobháideachta.
