Non-payment of the data protection fee trends report, Q4 2018/19

Between 1 January 2019 and 31 March 2019, we issued 123 monetary penalties to organisations that have not paid the data protection fee. Most organisations that process personal data must pay a fee and we can take action against those that don't. We issue a monetary penalty based on the fee the organisation should have paid. Of these organisations:

  • 110 were issued with a monetary penalty of £400.
  • 6 were issued with a monetary penalty of £600.
  • 7 were issued with a monetary penalty of £4000.
