This module is about how well a public authority is currently performing in their application of section 12. It provides an opportunity to reflect on how often the application of section 12 is upheld internally within a public authority and by the ICO.

When assessing your public authority as good, adequate or unsatisfactory against the criteria, it is important that you take a proportionate approach based on your individual organisation. You should take into account all relevant factors, including the number of requests you receive and your organisational structure. It is up to you to record your rating and provide rationale for this when building an action plan.
