Under Regulation 4 of the Environmental Information Regulations, a public authority has a duty to progressively make environmental information available to the public by electronic means which are easily accessible, and to take reasonable steps to organise information relevant to its functions with a view to active and systematic dissemination.
Information to be made available is described with Article 7(2), Directive 2003/4/EC and consists of treaties, policies, reports, monitoring data, and impact assessments. Priority of publication is to be given to information of interest to the public.
The pages for the Estates Division, School of Environmental Sciences, School of Biological Sciences, the UEA Digital Repository and our Library catalogue describe and hold much of the environmental information that we possess. For example, see https://portal.uea.ac.uk/estates/go-green for environmental information published by the Estates Division and https://www.cru.uea.ac.uk/data for environmental information published by the Climatic Research Unit (CRU).
The University already makes public large quantities of the environmental information that it holds, and a description of all information that we publish is available in our Publication Scheme or from the University's Information Policy and Compliance Manager.
