About the ICIC

The International Conference connects Information Commissioners, Ombudspersons and other bodies charged with overseeing the implementation of Access to Public Information legislation, in order to foster the protection and the promotion of access to public information as a fundamental pillar to social, economic and democratic governance.

The International Conference of Information Commissioners first met in 2003 and has met regularly since then. In March 2019, the International Conference reached a milestone when it adopted its Governance Charter.

The Charter was adopted by resolution on 13 March 2019.
