Re-Use of Public Service Information

Re-Use of Public Sector Information (PSI) Regulations

The European Communities (Re-Use of Public Sector Information) Regulations 2005) as amended by S.I. 103/2008 and S.I. 525/2015) provide a statutory basis for the re-use by individuals and organisations of existing information held by public sector bodies. The Regulations affect how information may be re-used, once it is legitimately accessed, by placing obligations on the public sector to the benefit of re-users.

The PSI Regulations provide for the re-use of information held by public sector bodies. It is important to note, however, that the PSI Regulations

  • do not create any new rights of access to information
  • do not circumscribe existing regimes in respect of copyright or intellectual property
  • do not circumscribe the protection of personal data or Freedom of Information (FOI) legislation
  • do not permit the release of information in a manner that is otherwise prohibited by law
