The Information Fair Trader Scheme
The Information Fair Trader Scheme sets and assesses standards for public sector bodies. It requires them to encourage the re-use of information and reach a standard of fairness and transparency.
There are two levels to the Scheme, Full IFTS Accreditation and IFTS Online Assessment:
- Full IFTS Accreditation is our gold standard accreditation scheme. It involves an onsite verification and is aimed at major information traders who wish to meet a very high standard of compliance with IFTS principles and the Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2005.
- IFTS Online Assessment is an online assessment tool aimed at all public sector bodies who wish to demonstrate basic compliance with IFTS principles and the Re-use of Public Sector Information 2005.
For more information about either level please see the links on the left or contact the Standards Team for further information.
