Access to Information
CITB-ConstructionSkills NI is a transparent and open organisation and we publish a great deal of information about what we do on this website which you can access by using the search facility clearly marked on our home page. However there may be other issues about which you would like further information and in this part of our website we explain how you can get such information.
Subject Access Requests under the Data Protection Act 1998
If you want to ask CITB-ConstructionSkills NI for information which we may hold about you personally then this will be dealt with under the Data Protection Act 1998. This would include information relating to employment and training records – anything which is limited to you as a person whether as an employee or partner of any kind.
If you wish to make a Subject Access Request you should write to:
Human Resources Manager at CITB-ConstructionSkills NI, 17 Dundrod Road, Nutts Corner, Crumlin, BT29 4SR, specifying the kind of information you wish to be made available to you and enclosing proof of identity – a formal document or bill with your name and address on it or your driving licence or passport.
Under the Data Protection Act 1998 we have 40 working days to provide the information you ask for. If you are unhappy with any aspect of the way in which we deal with your Subject Access Request you may complain to:
Information Manager, CITB-ConstructionSkills NI, 17 Dundrod Road Crumlin BT29 4SR or firstname.lastname@example.org
Or to the Information Commissioner at 51 Adelaide Street, Belfast, BT2 8FE
Or, if you feel we have failed to disclose information without good reason you may apply to a Court for disclosure.
Freedom of Information Act 2000.
In order to comply with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 public sector organisations such as CITB-ConstructionSkills NI have to routinely publish information whenever possible.
The Information Commissioner, who is responsible for monitoring and enforcing compliance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, has drawn up what is called a Model Publication Scheme for all public sector organisations (link) which we have decided to adopt and formally commit to. The Commissioner has also published a ‘Definition Document for Non Departmental Public Bodies (link) which sets out in some detail what his minimum expectations are as far as we are concerned.
CITB-ConstructionSkills NI has reviewed the information we routinely put into the public domain to ensure we are compliant with the Definition document. You will be able to see where we don’t hold relevant information or where for some reason we have decided not to routinely disclose information identified in the Definition document by referring to our Publication Scheme Guidance to Information
Most of the information we make routinely available can be accessed through our website by using the search facility. Such information is continually updated. If you cannot find information through the search engine and we have indicated in the definition document that the information is routinely available this may be because the information cannot be loaded onto our website. In such circumstances please contact:
Board Administrator, CITB-ConstructionSkills NI NI, 17 Dundrod Road, Nutts Corner, Crumlin, BT29 4SR email: email@example.com
and ask for the information to be provided to you.

Accessing information which is not included in the Publication Scheme.
As an open and transparent organisation we are committed to routinely publishing as much information as possible; however if you want information which is not on our website or otherwise available through our guide to information you may ask us for it in accordance with further provisions of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and of the Environmental Information Regulations 2005. Requests for such information should be sent to:
Information Manager, CITB, 17 Dundrod Road, Nutts Corner, Crumlin, BT29 4SR
By law we have to deal with such requests within 20 working days. If you make a request and are not satisfied with the way in which we deal with it you may ask us to review any decision we make. If you wish us to undertake such a review you should write to:
Information Manager, CITB-ConstructionSkills NI, 17 Dundrod Road, Nutts Corner, Crumlin, BT29 4SR
Any review will normally be under the control and direction of a senior member of staff who had no involvement in the original decision or process
If you remain dissatisfied at the conclusion of any review you may complain to the Information Commissioner whose address is 51 Adelaide Street, Belfast, BT2 8FE
