Developing your Public Interest Disclosure policy

Category Guidelines and model policies
Publication Date 1 October 2023


This guideline contains a model PID policy (Model Policy) which agencies can adopt, as well as guidance on developing their PID policy based on the Model Policy.

Agencies can alternatively develop their own PID policy not based on the Model Policy, but if they do, they still must have regard to any relevant Ombudsman’s guidelines (including those set out in the Model Policy).
