British Antarctic Survey (BAS), as part of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and UK Research and Innovation, is committed to openness, transparency, good record-keeping and effective communication in our handling of all requests for information. BAS encourages the wide distribution of the findings of its research.
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 and Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIRs) give you specific rights to obtain information about what we do and how we do it.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) (2016/679) gives you the right to see personal information we hold about you.
The UK Research and Innovation Publication Scheme, currently under development, and the Natural Environment Research Council Publication Scheme aim to make a significant amount of our information available to you without needing to request it specifically under the Freedom of Information Act or Environmental Information Regulations.
If you cannot find the information you are interested in on the BAS or UK Research and Innovation website, enquiries may be made to our existing enquiry points, a full list of which is available on our Contacts page.
If you wish to make a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 or the Environmental Information Regulations 2004, please email the BAS FOI Officer at [email protected] OR contact UK Research and Innovation at [email protected]
