Sample letters for mediation procedures’
If you have requested access to information or are directly affected by a request for access to information and you do not agree with the authority's decision, you can ask the FDPIC for a mediation. The FDPIC only takes action if requested to do so. The aim of mediation is to resolve conflicts as quickly and constructively as possible. Mediation is free of charge.
A request for mediation can be submitted in the following cases:
- The authority refuses, restricts or postpones access to the requested document.
