ICO Responds to MoJ
PRIVACY LAW—UK & EUOctober 6, 2010
Document Management News reports on the information commissioner's response to the Ministry of Justice's (MoJ) call for evidence on the current data protection legislative framework. The response highlights key features the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) would expect to see in any revised framework and, the report states, points out that although the current data protection principles are sound, the law needs to provide more clarity for individuals and for businesses. David Smith, deputy commissioner and director, said, "The ICO has welcomed the MoJ's call for evidence on the current framework. We have no doubt that this framework...can be improved so that the law is more effective in practice."
