* This information is exempt under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002- Information Not Held. We are unable to gather this information as our system will not allow us to ‘browse’ historically and we are unable to ‘search’ as each individual request title is different. Also our reporting tool only goes back to November 2015. Prior to late 2015 all EISR and FOI requests were logged as requests under FOISA.

** This information is gathered from the SIC website as we are unable to get this information from our recording system.
