The Children’s code (or Age appropriate design code) is a data protection code of practice for online services likely to be accessed by children, such as apps, online games, social media and websites.

Following the first anniversary of the Children’s code’s implementation, the ICO is evaluating the code’s impact. We are gathering information from sources including market research, ongoing stakeholder engagement and our experience of supervising the code over the past year.

This consultation is to gather the views of stakeholders and the public. These views will inform an upcoming report evaluating the impact of the Children’s code.

Please submit responses by 5pm on Friday 18 November 2022. We may not consider responses submitted after the deadline.

If you have any general queries about the consultation, please email us at [email protected].
