News flash: ICO publishes draft data sharing code of practice
Published: 05 August 2019
The Information Commissioner’s Office (“ICO”) has recently published the draft data sharing code of practice. At just over 100 pages long, this thrilling read updates the ICO’s guidance for data sharing following the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation and the Data Protection Act 2018. Page 8 of the code strongly encourages compliance with the code or risk finding it ‘more difficult to demonstrate that your data sharing is fair, lawful and accountable’ and compliant with the recent legislative changes.
The draft code is now out for public consultation and responses are required by 9 September 2019. The consultation survey can be accessed here: https://ico.org.uk/about-the-ico/ico-and-stakeholder-consultations/ico-consultation-on-the-draft-data-sharing-code-of-practice/
