Purpose of a secondary ICO registration for the Scottish Government: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

Information requested

You asked for information about the purpose of a secondary ICO registration for the Scottish Government.


The ICO listed number ZB331297 does not belong to the Scottish Government, and we believe has been registered by a third party in error. We have raised this with the third party, and the Information Commissioner's Office, so that appropriate action can be taken to avoid any future confusion.

The registration under the number Z4857137 remains the only Scottish Government registration.

The Scottish Government's head office is located at:
St Andrews House
2 Regent Road
EH1 3DG.

The head office details of executive agencies listed on our ICO registration (Disclosure Scotland, Education Scotland, Forestry and Land Scotland, Scottish Forestry, Scottish Prison Service, Scottish Public Pensions Agency, Social Security Scotland, Student Awards Agency for Scotland and Transport Scotland) is already available and can be found on their respective websites.
