Appealing an ICO Decision

Postby Spankymonkey » Wed Mar 15, 2017 10:49 pm

I finally got a decision notice from the ICO regarding my FOI appeal. A mixed bag. The ICO have notified the relevant authority that they must reveal one half of the data requested. The other half falls within Data Protection exemptions. The authority have been given 35 days to forward this information or appeal.

My question is, if either myself or the authority appeal, will the authorities obligation to forward this 'one half' of the data be suspended pending appeal?

I do not know the precise riules, but expect the folllowing to be the case.

There will be an immediate obligation to release the information within the next no of days.
If they appeal, and so request, that obligation is suspended until the appeal is determined.

If I appeal an order against me, I would seek to avoid compliance pending the determination of my appeal.
