The code of practice will provide guidance on how to assess the risks of identification and how information can be successfully anonymised. The code is intended to demonstrate that the effective anonymisation of personal data is possible, desirable and can help society to ensure the availability of rich data resources whilst protecting individuals’ privacy.

Alongside this, the ICO has published an invitation to tender for a provider to establish a network of experts to share best practice around the release of data in an anonymised form.
