Trade and Business Licensing Statistics & Board Policies

Informal Resolution | 08 March 2021
Department of Commerce & Investment

This appeal followed from a request for Trade and Business Licensing (TBL) statistics and board policies. The DCI advised the applicant that the requested records were not held.

In the course of the appeal, we met with the DCI to discuss their records. We soon realized that at least some of the requested data were held in the TBL database. Upon our suggestion, DCI was able to export selected data fields to a spreadsheet, and provide further explanations for possible distortions of the figures to the applicant. This satisfied the applicant and the appeal was closed.
