This revised code of practice on CCTV is intended to replace the last revision which was published in 2008.

The aim of this revision is to reflect the developments in existing technologies that have taken place since the last revision, to discuss the emergence of new surveillance technologies and the issues they present, to reflect further policy development in areas such as privacy impact assessments, to explain the impact that new case law has had on the area of surveillance systems and to reflect the wider regulatory environment that exists when using surveillance systems.
