Oliver Morley, our Chief Executive and Keeper, and Christopher Graham, the Information Commissioner, signing the Memorandum of Understanding

07 August 2012

Today we have published on our website a Memorandum of Understanding signed by the Information Commissioner and the Chief Executive of The National Archives. This sets out how The National Archives and the Information Commissioner's Office will work together to achieve our separate and common goals.

The aims of the Memorandum of Understanding are to:

  • facilitate contact and discussion on matters of common interest, particularly by sharing knowledge, information, expertise and best practice
  • set out the basis on which the organisations will cooperate when dealing with complaints relating to the re-use of information held by public sector bodies
  • provide a framework for the coordination of audit and assessment work
