TRAINING FOR OFFICIAL PERSONS WITH HOLDERS OF PUBLIC INFORMATION
The Agency for the Protection of the Right to Free Access to Public Information held a training session for the officials from the state administration bodies as holders of public information.
A team of trainers from the Agency carried out the training. The purpose of it was to raise public awareness and the degree of familiarity of the holders of information with the Law on Free Access to Public Information, as well as their obligations stemming from it, with a particular review of the way of exercising the right of access to public information.
Particular emphasis was placed on the need for proactive publication of the information created and available by these institutions. By strengthening active transparency, citizens are regularly informed about the institutions’ work, making the officials’ work more accessible. At the same time, the need for inclusiveness of websites was emphasised so that every citizen is included in the right to be informed.
At the training, the procedure for public information requests, the appeal and misdemeanour procedure, familiarisation with the portals and their application in the work of the persons in charge of mediating the public information were explained to the attendees, alongside the legal obligation of the holders to prepare their annual reports.
We would hereby like to invite all officials with information holders to register to monitor the training, at the e-mail address: email@example.com.
