The Information Commissioners Office has updated its guidance on the following topics which can be found on the ICO website on these links: Subject access code of practice, CCTV code of practice and Guide to data protection.

Business owners should take note of this guidance but keep in mind that the Data Protection Act 1998 will be replaced by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) with effect 25 May 2018. The Regulation will significantly change the existing guidance on subject access requests, CCTV monitoring and the financial penalties that the ICO can issue for non-compliance with the rules.

If you have access to the legal helpline and want to discuss your specific circumstances with a qualified solicitor or barrister, please get in touch with them.
