Chime is an organisation covered by the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act. Chime already makes a large volume of information available to the public in relation to its functions and activities on our website www.chime.ie


The FOI Act requires government departments, the Health Service Executive, local authorities and other agencies to publish information on their activities and to make personal information available to its service users. It is Chime’s policy generally to make personal information available to service users on request without having to use the FOI Act.

In addition, the Freedom of Information Act establishes the legal right for a person to

  • Access information held by public bodies and government departments
  • Have official information relating to himself/herself amended where it is incomplete, incorrect or misleading
  • Obtain reasons for decisions affecting himself/herself

The Citizens Information Board has more information about the workings of the FOI Act here
