If you wish to request access to environmental information held by Health and Safety Authority, simply complete the above form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please state in your email / letter that your request is made under the AIE Regulations 2007-2018.
To help streamline the AIE application process and to ensure a timely response to all requests, we have developed a designated AIE form.
When can I expect a response to my request?
HSA will notify you of the decision on your request within one month of our receiving it.
On receipt of an AIE request, HSA will issue you with an acknowledgement letter outlining the date the request was received and the latest date by which a decision will be issued.
Will it cost me anything?
There is no fee to make a request under AIE Regulations. However, the regulations do allow a public authority to charge a reasonable fee for the cost of supplying the environmental information.
HSA has set the following charges:
- search, retrieval and copying of records: €20 per hour
- photocopy: €0.04 per sheet
- CD Rom: €10
- radiograph: €6
Details of any charges that apply will be advised in the final decision letter. Please note that the fee may be waived where the cost is estimated at less than €100.
We may also disregard charges if the record contains only personal information and if, having regard to the means of the requester, it would not be reasonable to apply one.
What if I am unhappy with a decision?
You can request an internal review of the decision if your request for environmental information has been either wholly or partially refused, or if you believe it has not been dealt with in accordance with the provisions of the AIE Regulations. You should make this request for an internal review within one month of receiving the final decision.
Requests for internal reviews should be submitted to: email@example.com
If you are unhappy with the outcome of the internal review, you may ask the Office of the Commissioner for Environmental Information (OCEI) to review the matter. You should request an appeal to the OCEI within one month of receiving the decision of the internal review
