The NSF Access Request Policy is to ensure that we comply with requests made under the provisions of the Data Protection Act.


Individuals may make a request to the NSF as a right to establish existence of personal data. Under the Data Protection Act an individual may make a request asking whether we keep any personal data.  Where the NSF hold such personal data, we shall respond within 21 days of receipt of the request, giving a description of the data held and the purposes for which it is kept.

There is no fee for making a request under the Data Protection Act.

Send the request in writing to us at:- Secretary, National Supervisors Forum, 85 Lurgan Park, Galway, indicating the access request is made under the Data Protection Act. Before we respond to the request it may be required that satisfactory evidence of identity and address is provide.

We do not accept requests by telephone, email or text message.

On making an Access Request under the Data Protection Act, you should receive a copy of any personal data held by the NSF upon written request.

In order to respond to the access request. The written letter must be signed and dated. The request must be specific as possible about the data. Attach a photocopy of proof of identity and address in the written access request.

However, please note that we may not provide the data requested if the access request does not meet the requirements as above.

Once we have received the written access request and the proof of identity and address and the possible fee, we shall respond within the statutory period of 40 days.

If the individual is not satisfied with the outcome of the access, he/she is entitled to make a complaint to the Data Protection Commissioner who may investigate the matter.

Overall responsibility for ensuring compliance with the access requests made under the Data Protection Act rests with NSF.
