The UK’s independent authority set up to uphold information rights in the public interest, promoting openness by public bodies and data privacy for individuals.

When sharing data, you must follow the data protection principles.

As previously stated, a data sharing agreement will provide a framework to help you to do this.

There are some differences between the principles in the respective pieces of legislation:

  • the UK GDPR and Part 2 of the DPA 2018 for general data processing; and
  • Part 3 of the DPA 2018 for law enforcement processing.

You should refer to the detailed guidance on the ICO website.
