Freedom of Information Statement
British Antarctic Survey (BAS), as part of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), is committed to meeting its obligations under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the Environmental Information Regulations 2004. BAS encourages the wide distribution of the findings of its research.
The Freedom of Information Act requires NERC to adopt and maintain a Publication Scheme stating:
- the types (classes) of information we publish, or intend to publish
- how our information is, or will be, published
- whether the information is, or will be, made available to you free of charge or on payment
The NERC Publication Scheme aims to make a significant amount of our information available to you without needing to request it specifically under the Freedom of Information Act. We also want to inform you of the range of material that is available. Copies of the Publication Scheme are available from the address below or from the NERC website.
If you cannot find the information you want from the Publication Scheme, please contact:
Freedom of Information Office
British Antarctic Survey
In addition to the above contact point, enquiries may still be made to our existing enquiry points, such as the BAS Press Office and the Polar Data Centre, or through the comments section on this website, or directly to individual scientists
