12. What is a redacted document and why have documents been redacted?

A document has been redacted if any of its content has been removed from public view.

Some redactions are required in order to comply with legislation, including the Data Protection Act 1998.

During the disclosure process, the Panel carried out checks to confirm that redactions, where made, were in accordance with the policies in the Redaction framework.
