Frequently asked questions

Do we need sign-off by my organisation’s director to participate in the Sandbox?

Yes, we ask for confirmation of authority to submit from a member of staff with sufficient seniority at application stage, for example, a Data Protection Officer, a SIRO, a CEO or Director.

Does our Data Protection Officer have to be involved in the application to the Sandbox?

If you have a DPO, we expect that this member of staff will have sufficient knowledge of data protection to be a useful point of contact for us to engage with alongside other members of staff, for example, development teams. As a minimum, we expect that your DPO will be aware of your involvement in the Sandbox.
