Non-payment of the data protection fee trends report, Q1 2019/2020

Between 1 April and 30 June, we issued 200 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 those organisations:

  • 192 organisations have been issued with a monetary penalty of £400
  • 7 organisations have been issued with a monetary penalty of £600
  • 1 organisation has been issued with a monetary penalty of £4000.
