November 27th, 2018

The PA Office of Open Records (OOR) is required by Pennsylvania's Right-to-Know Law to "develop a uniform [request] form which shall be accepted by all Commonwealth and local agencies" (Section 505(a) of the RTKL).

Pursuant to that duty, the OOR has issued a new version of the Standard RTKL Request Form, which is available here in both PDF and DOCX formats:

Right-to-Know Law Forms

The new Standard RTKL Request Form reflects great input from both agencies and requesters. The OOR asked for feedback in September and made changes based on that feedback/

As required by Section 505(a) of the RTKL, all Commonwealth and local agencies must accept RTKL requests submitted on the new Standard RTKL Request Form, as well as requests submitted on previous versions of the Standard RTKL Request Form.

The new Standard RTKL Request Form can also be accessed directly via these links:
