Data sharing can bring important benefits to organisations, citizens and consumers, making our lives easier and help important, however, that organisations who share personal data have high data protection standards, sharing data in accountable. We also want controllers to be confident when dealing with data sharing matters so individuals can be securely and responsibly.
As required by the Data Protection Act 2018, we are working on updating our data sharing code of practice, which code will explain and advise on changes to data protection legislation, where these changes are relevant to data sharing the new legislation including transparency, lawful bases for processing, the new accountability principle and the re activities.
The updated data sharing code of practice will continue to provide practical guidance in relation to data sharing and first instance we will address the impact of the changes in data protection legislation on data sharing and will then studies. Our intention is that, as well as legislative changes, the code will also deal with technical and other develop sharing since the publication of the last code in 2011.
Before preparation of the code the Information Commissioner must consult with the Secretary of State. She is also data subjects and those representing the interests of data subjects. This call for views is the first stage of the consult responses we receive to inform our work in developing the updated code.
