The NCA's default position is to be open and transparent about our activity unless there are specific operational and security risks to consider.
To ensure we can protect our officers, victims, witnesses and partners the Freedom of Information Act 2000 does not apply to the NCA so we are unable to respond to Freedom of Information requests.
Part 1 (6) of the Crime and Courts Act places an obligation on the Director General of the NCA to make arrangements for publishing information about the exercise of NCA functions and other matters relating to the NCA, and to publish information in accordance with those obligations. The types of information that the DG will publish under this duty are set out in the pdf NCA Framework Document (223 KB) .
The duty to publish is subject to the restrictions on disclosure set out in Schedule 7 of the Crime and Courts Act.
