Principle of public access
Public documents and confidentiality
All documents that are received by an authority or are drawn up and stored there are public documents. This applies to all documents apart from documents provided for the purpose of preparing a case, such as reminder notes, drafts or internal working documents.
All public documents may be viewed on request. But the fact that a document is public does not mean that all information in it is public.
We are obliged by the principle of public access to make documents available for viewing if someone requests it. You can find further information on the principle of public access on the Government Offices’ website.
The principle of public access on the Government Offices’ website
The law on disclosure and transparency (2009:400) regulates what information shall be public and what information shall be subject to confidentiality in a public document. The law is there to protect the integrity of parties who for various reasons submit documents to an authority.
What information is covered by confidentiality is checked whenever a request to view a document is made. Your case handler will, therefore, always make a confidentiality assessment of the documents that are requested to be viewed. By law we are unable to make information available that may cause a party financial harm. This applies to information on someone’s business or operational relations, inventions or research results. We cannot provide information about financial or personal relations concerning collaboration partners to organisations that are subjects of our activity. This means that if you have a business connection with an organisation that receives financing from us, we will keep this information about you confidential. This applies regardless of whether there is a risk of financial harm or not.
