The right of access to public information is the right people have to access the information prepared by the Administration and that which is held by them as a consequence of their activity or the exercise of Its functions, including that provided to other obligated subjects in accordance with the law (article 18 of Law 19/2014, of December 29, on transparency, access to public information and good governance).
Through this procedure you can exercise the right of access to public information that Law 19/2014 recognizes to all persons, individually or in the name and representation of any legally constituted legal entity, not subject to personal interest or subject to motivation or invocation of any norm.
You can submit your request for access to the public information telematically or in person. In the latter case, you can do it at any registry office of the Generalitat de Catalunya (you can check the closest office here) or in any of the places provided for in article 16.4 of Law 39/2015, October 1, of the common administrative procedure of the public administrations, of the legal system of the public administrations and of the common administrative procedure.
Once the application is submitted, you will receive a communication indicating the day on which it was received, the body responsible for resolving it, the maximum date for resolving it and the person responsible for the procedure.
In general, the Administration must resolve requests for access to information within a period of one month, although this term may be suspended or extended in the cases legally provided for. In the event that you do not receive an answer within this time limit, you can understand your request, with the limitations set forth in article 35 of the aforementioned Law.
If the request is resolved favorably, expressly or by administrative silence, the competent body must provide the information to the interested party, preferably in the format in which he has requested, within thirty days. Access to public information is free, but the issue of copies and the conversion to formats other than the original may be subject to an economic consideration, which can not exceed the cost of the operation.
Express or presumed resolutions may be the subject of an optional appeal for reversal before the body that issued them. These resolutions and, where appropriate, those that resolve the appeal for reversal may be subject to a free and voluntary claim before the Guarantee of the Right to Access to Public Information Commission (GAIP), which acts with full independence from the Administration and without subjection to hierarchical instructions of any kind. Those interested can also file an administrative appeal or use any other means of challenge or defense they deem appropriate.
