Updated information on the Model Publication Scheme

17th April 2019

The Adopting and Maintaining a Publication Scheme section within the Practice Support Manual’s Ethical Practice Topic has been updated to reflect changes to the Scottish Information Commissioner’s Model Publication Scheme (MPS) and to other legislation. This section now includes links to the current MPS and guidance on the Information Commissioner website and an updated template Guide to Information for practices to adapt.
Points to note include:

  • an added class of information (Our Open Data),
  • revisions to the MPS principles, and
  • updated information on copyright and the re-use of public sector information.

Practices are advised to review their publication scheme and use the template to update their Guide to Information.
