The Information Tribunal, which dealt with appeals over data protection and freedom of information rulings, has been merged into a unified body
The Information Tribunal, which handled appeals for freedom of information and data protection cases, has been abolished.
The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) is responsible for monitoring organisations' compliance with freedom of information and data protection laws.
Appeals from organisations and companies against rulings handed out by the ICO were heard by the Information Tribunal
However, the tribunal has now been merged with the General Regulatory Chamber (GRC), which was established on 1 September 2009.
This unified service includes other tribunals including tax and property. The move involves a change to the structure of appeals against ICO decisions.
