Will my submission be published?
If you wish to have your submission published on SIRA’s website, you must select the relevant option on the online form. However, we may decide not to publish submissions or to redact information in submissions, such as confidential information, prior to publication.
We may consider that your submission is confidential if it contains personal and/or health information or could be considered defamatory. We will not publish these confidential submissions on our website, however we may use material from confidential submissions, such as quotes, case studies or other references in the report produced as a result of the consultation. If we do this, we will remove any personal and health information so that you or other people referred to in your submission cannot be identified.
We will not release confidential submissions to anyone without your consent unless required by law. Documents held by SIRA may be subject to a request under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA Act). In the case of a request under the GIPA Act there are likely to be relevant exemptions to production (including for material obtained in confidence and personal information). We would consult you about any request made under the GIPA Act before a decision is made about releasing information.
