The ICO exists to empower you through information.

Following best practice and the guidance in our ‘Impact Assessment Framework’, we deem it appropriate to conduct a proportionate impact assessment of our proposed guidance intervention to increase regulatory certainty around ‘likely to be accessed’ linked to the Children’s code. We have produced a draft initial assessment, as summarised in Table 1 below. We are seeking feedback on our identified impacts, as well as any other insights stakeholders can provide on impacts, via the consultation on the draft guidance. It is important to note that we do not intend for this summary to provide an exhaustive assessment of impacts. It is just an initial overview of our considerations. We will develop our impact assessment work further as we move towards final publication of the guidance, post consultation.
