The Data Protection Act 1998 requires every organisation that processes personal information to register with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), unless they are exempt. Failure to do so is a criminal offence.

There are more than 370,000 registered data controllers. We publish the name and address of these data controllers, as well as a description of the kind of processing they do.

Please note that, due to technical difficulties, we are currently unable to update the public register. However, organisations are registered with us from the time we receive a valid form and fee. The public register was last updated on 27 May 2015.
