The NCHA today published its updated data protection guidance for community hearing providers in the UK.
This follows our initial data protection guidance published in December 2017, designed to help community providers comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by the time it became law earlier in the year on 25 May.
Our updated guidance reflects changes since December 2017, including the Data Protection Act 2018 becoming law in the UK and new guidance issued by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). Our new guidance features a simplified section on data protection regulations, additional detail on lawful bases for processing data and a new easy-reference layout.

Please note: the ICO plans to issue new guidance in response to the Data Protection Act 2018. Once this is published, the NCHA will assess whether we need to update our data protection guidance.
