We have published our Sandbox beta report. This covers our learnings and the improvements we have made following the beta phase of the Regulatory Sandbox.
The ICO's regulatory sandbox has re-opened, with a new area of focus for 2021-22 on products and services exploring the use and deployment of innovative technologies, such as privacy-enhancing technologies and distributed ledger technologies.
We are still welcoming expressions of interest on innovations related to complex data sharing, particularly in the areas of health, central government, finance, higher and further education or law enforcement.
