Previous versions of these documents should be destroyed.

Changes to Decision Search Facility:
We have recently revised our decision search facility page.
The key changes for regular users to note are that:
- Search results are now returned with the most recent decision at the top of the results (previously it was agency alphabetical order).
- The previous ‘Search by exemption’ and ‘Search by section’ facilities have been replaced. These searches are now limited to the catchwords contained in the Information Commissioner's FULL decisions only. An explanation of ‘catchwords’ is provided on the search page.
