As society becomes increasingly transparent, public access to government information through Freedom of Information requests (Wob-verzoeken) plays an important role. With detailed requests on sensitive topics carried out daily, the impact on the private sector and the relationship between government and business is enormous. The dynamics are changing, with political debate on transparency (including the new Rutte-doctrine) and the new Wet open overheid due to enter into force in 2022. Companies need to understand the legal framework of the Dutch Freedom of Information Act in order to safeguard their interests and to prevent potential disclosure of information.
During this Master Class Arjan Kleinhout and Jasper van Uden will focus on recent developments and on how companies can efficiently and effectively handle these requests.
This Webinar Master Class will be held on on Thursday, 30 September at our Amsterdam Office (Covid permitting) from 08:30 – 10:30 or Friday, 1 October via MS Teams from 08:30 – 10:00.
