1 May 2019

The Data Protection (Charges and Information) (Amendment) Regulations 2019 came into force this week and have changed the rules around paying the data protection fee. Subsequently it now means that members of the House of Lords, elected representatives and prospective representatives are exempt from paying a fee.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has updated the local council FAQ’s on its website and data protection fee guidance to reflect these changes.
