You can expect an acknowledgement within two weeks of QQI receiving your request for information.
You will receive a decision on your request within four weeks of QQI receiving your request for information.
If you are not satisfied with the information you receive in response to a request and would like to appeal the decision, you can apply for an internal review.
You will be told the result of this review within 3 weeks.
Requests for internal review require an application fee of €30 (€10 for medical card holders). There is no fee for an internal review of a request for personal information or in the case of a late decision on a non-personal request. Cheques or postal orders should be made out to Quality and Qualifications Ireland.
Section 8 of the Freedom of Information Act 2014 requires FOI bodies to prepare and publish a scheme concerning the publication of information. This allows for the publication or giving of records outside of FOI provided that such publication or giving of access is not prohibited by law. The Minister is of the view that FOI bodies should publish as much information as possible in an open and accessible manner on a routine basis outside of FOI, having regard to the principles of openness, transparency and accountability as set out in Sections 8(5) and 11(3) of the Act.
The QQI FOI Publication Scheme is shown in the headings below. Each link leads to a listing of the relevant information. If the information you require cannot be found here, you can search the QQI website for more information using the search box on the top of the home page, or you may wish to contact us using QHelp and we will route your enquiry to an appropriate staff member.
