As required by the Data Protection Act 2018 we are working on updating our Data sharing code of practice, which was originally published in 2011.

The updated draft code will explain and advise on changes to data protection legislation where these changes are relevant to data sharing. It will address many aspects of the new legislation including transparency, lawful bases for processing, the new accountability principle and the requirement to record processing activities.

The draft code is now out for public consultation and the consultation will remain open until Monday 9 September 2019.
