Enacted in 1966, and taking effect on July 5, 1967, the Freedom of Information Act
(FOIA) provides that any person has a right, enforceable in court, to obtain access
to federal agency records, except to the extent that such records (or portions of
them) are protected from public disclosure by one of nine exemptions or by one of
three special law enforcement record exclusions. A FOIA request can be made for
any agency record. Before sending a request to a federal agency, you should determine
which agency is likely to have the records you are seeking. Each agency’s website
will contain information about the type of records that agency maintains.

of Information Act or to make a FOIA request.
