Request:

Could you send me any interpretative guides, directives, or manuals that the National Archives prepares for its employees regarding: www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/doc/open-government-licence/.

Outcome:

Information accessible by other means

Response:

To confirm, The National Archives does not have any interpretative guides, directives, or manuals principally for our staff. The guidance that staff use to interpret the Open Government Licence is all on our website.

Under Freedom of Information this information is exempt under section 21 of the FOI Act 2000 - information accessible via other means. This is because this information is readily available and within the public domain (on our website) and we thus are not obliged to provide this information.

However, for ease of access we have provided you with the link to this information on our website: nationalarchives.gov.uk/information-management/government-licensing/guidance-for-information-providers.htm
