This chapter is about the administrative procedure and procedural rules concerning freedom of information requests. It lays out the relevant law, starting with requests that are based on the federal freedom of information act (»Informationsfreiheitsgesetz«), but also taking into account the environmental information act (»Umweltinformationsgesetz«) and the consumer information act (Verbraucherinformationsgesetz), as well as essential state law. The authors give practical advice what applicants should keep in mind in order to best exercise their right of access to information.
