Who is responsible for disclosing the requested document?

The official responsible for the case is also the person responsible for disclosing the requested document. If someone has requested to obtain documents pertaining to a case of which you are responsible, you must promptly process that request. If you have doubts about what to do with such a request, please consult one of the university administration legal counsels.

Shall public disclosure requests be registered?

Only requests for disclosure of public documents that are rejected or subject to confidentiality assessment are to be registered. Confidentiality must be assessed in each individual case by the person storing the document.

Decisions to reject requests for disclosure of public documents are made by the head of administration after assessment by the Legal Office. The decision to reject must be registered. Contact one of the legal counsels at the Legal Office for advice!

If the requested document is classified as confidential, you should also contact the University administration legal counsels.
