UK businesses readied for the GDPR with draft Regulatory Action Policy and portability guidance

Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) came into effect on 25 May 2018, and in the UK businesses are looking to the Information Commissioner’s Office (‘ICO’) for guidance on the new regime. In the run-up to 25 May 2018 the ICO’s publications have included a draft Regulatory Action Policy, open for consultation until late June 2018, which provides a sense of how the ICO will go about its regulatory duties once the GDPR is in effect. Meanwhile the ICO has also offered guidance on the individual’s right to data portability under the GDPR. Stuart Crook of Stephensons Solicitors LLP here looks at the contents of both publications and discusses why they are of importance.
