Industry News | 04/12/19

A consultation by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) seeks comments on its draft right of access guidance. Following its initial guidance on Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) on this right, the ICO has now drafted more detailed guidance which explains in greater detail the rights that individuals have to access their personal data and the obligations on controllers. The draft guidance also explores the special rules involving certain categories of personal data, how to deal with requests involving the personal data of others, and the exemptions that are most likely to apply in practice when handling a request. Consultation ends: 12 February 2020.
