Review of the ID Card procedures

17 March 2014

As per MSDC Circular 03/2014  as from today (17/03/2014), the need for the FOI applicant’s copy of ID card is no longer necessary for the request to be considered a valid request.

It is to be considered that since the spirit of the FOI Act is that any document released under the Act is released to the public, all requests that are not subject specific may be processed without the need of ensuring that the applicant submitted a copy of the ID card or residence permit. However, it is to be noted that  whenever a Public Authoritiy deems that it requires proof that the request can only be released to the subject or the subject’s representatives, Public Authorities are still empowered to request additional documention to ensure the identity of the applicant or to prove the connection with the subject – while ensuring that no additional personal data or documentation are requested beyond what is necessary to comply with Data Protection procedures.
