The ICO exists to empower you through information.

This consultation has closed

In September 2022, we clarified our position that adult-only services are in scope of the Children’s code if they are likely to be accessed by children. To support Information Society Service providers (ISS) to assess whether children are likely to access their service, we have developed the following guidance:

  • FAQs
  • List of factors 
  • Case studies 

We are seeking your feedback on the supporting guidance documents on ‘likely to be accessed’ in the context of the Children’s code and the accompanying impact assessment.

Please read this guidance alongside the Children’s code section on services covered by the code.

The consultation will remain open until 19 May 2023. The ICO welcomes feedback on the specific questions set out in this survey.
