Where a request is made to ESB under the AIE Regulations and (i) the environmental information requested is not held by ESB and (ii) ESB believes that the information is or may be held by another Public Authority under the AIE Regulations, ESB will transfer your request as soon as possible to the relevant Public Authority under Article 7(6) of the AIE Regulations.  In these circumstances you will be informed that your request has been transferred.

As provided for under the AIE Regulations, ESB will try to respond to your request as soon as possible.  No later than one month after the receipt of your request we will either respond with a decision, notify you of the transfer of your request to another Public Authority or notify you that an extra month is required (as provided under the AIE Regulations) to deal with your request.
