Transparency Act

We would like to point out that on 13 July 2022 the Saxon Landtag passed the Act on the Transparency of Information in the Free State of Saxony (Saxon Transparency Act – SächsTranspG), which entered into force on 01 January 2023.

According to Article 1 of the Act, every person is entitled to demand publication of the information referred to in Article 8 of the Act and access to information from bodies subject to transparency obligations, unless an exception applies (right to transparency).

The information is either made available on the transparency platform – an electronic platform operated on the internet by the Free State of Saxony, where information is published – or made accessible upon request by the body subject to transparency.

Any requests for access to information under the Transparency Act must be sent to

The German version of the Act shall apply.
