The submission of requests for information to the Office of the Czech Fiscal Council (hereafter referred to as “the Office”) and the subsequent provision of such information are governed by Act No. 106/1999 Coll. on free access to information, as amended. These principles regulate in greater detail certain provisions of the Act on Free Access to Information that are particularly relevant to the Office. They must invariably be interpreted under the Act on Free Access to Information, whose procedures must be strictly followed.
