FOIA Records

The Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S. Code Section 552, as amended by the OPEN Government Act of 2007, Publication L, No. 110-175, 121 Stat. 2524, gives the public the right to access any Department of Navy (DoN) records unless the information in those records is protected by one or more of nine exemptions that qualify an agency's need to withhold records from a requester, and there is a sound legal basis to withhold them. 

The DoN adheres to the policy and disclosure regulations set forth in 32 CFR Chapter VI, Part 701, to implement the FOIA uniformly and to provide maximum allowable disclosure of agency records upon request by an individual.
