04 November 2016 - Freedom of Information

The Adoption Authority has recently received a number of requests under the Freedom of Information Act 2014 seeking access to adoption records.  We wish to draw your attention to the following:

The Freedom of Information Act 2014 Act designates the Adoption Authority of Ireland as a ‘Partially Included Agency’. This means that the Acts do not apply to ‘records concerning, or arising from, the making of an adoption order or the recognition of an intercountry adoption effected outside the State, within the meaning of the Adoption Act 2010'.

The Adoption Authority of Ireland publishes a list of Freedom of Information (FOI) requests received. You can access the list here.
