Public journal

Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences’ public records contain public information about cases and documents. The public records are digitally available via the eInnsyn service.

eInnsyn is a common service provided by the Norwegian Digitalisation Agency (Digdir). The service is used by INN University and several other government agencies to publicise their public records online. The public records are collected in a common database and its contents are openly accessible.

In eInnsyn, it is possible to search for and read full-text documents. You may also request access to documents that have not been fully published. In order to process your request for access, we use INN University’s case and archive system. This means that your inquiry and our response will be archived and thus also searchable in public records.

Public Records

In eInnsyn, you may search in INN University’s public records.

Here, you will find information about cases and documents that are registered in INN University’s case archive system. INN University does not publish documents in full text, but you may search in the information about the actual document you are looking for. This means that you cannot search directly in the document text for words, expressions or formulations.

INN University is responsible for ensuring that confidential information is not made public. Personal names must not be searchable after being published in eInnsyn for more than 12 months. This means that if you search for a personal name in eInnsyn, you will only get hits in the first 12 months after the publication date for listings containing the name you are searching for.

Freedom of information act

Public administration act

 

Exceptions to public disclosure

The main rule of the Freedom of Information Act is that case documents, journals and similar registers of an administrative agency are public except as otherwise provided by statute or by regulations pursuant thereto.

All documents that are exempt from public disclosure have been granted exemption pursuant to law. 

Section 3 of the Freedom of Information Act

 

Enhanced access to information

Where there is occasion to exempt information from access, an administrative agency shall nonetheless consider allowing full or partial access. The administrative agency should allow access if the interest of public access outweighs the need for exemption.

Therefore, anyone may make a request for access to a document even if it is exempt from public disclosure. 

Section 11 of the Freedom of Information Act 

 

Appeal against refusal of a request for access

Appeals against refusal of a request for access must first be sent to Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences, which then submits the appeal to the relevant appeals body cf. provisions in Section 32 of the Freedom of Information Act.

The deadline for lodging an appeal is three weeks from the date on which notification of the administrative decision has reached the party concerned cf. Section 29 of the Public Administration Act.
