Internal Review on Request
You may seek an internal review of the initial decision, which will be carried out by the Registrar of DIAS if:
- you are dissatisfied with the initial response received, i.e. refusal of information, form of access, fees, etc. or
- you have not received a reply within four weeks of your initial application. This is deemed to be a refusal of your request and allows you to proceed to internal review. A fee of €30 (€10 for medical card holders) applies where the request was for non-personal information. There is no fee for internal review applications concerning only personal information relating to oneself or in relation to a decision regarding fees.
Such a request for internal review must be submitted within 4 weeks of the initial decision. We must complete the review within 3 weeks. Internal review must normally be completed before an appeal may be made to the Office of the Information Commissioner. You will be notified of the outcome in writing.
