Call for Evidence on the data protection legislative framework

 




 











Call for Evidence on the data protection legislative
framework


The Data Protection
Directive is to be reviewed at European government level which has led to the
Ministry of Justice to issue a ‘Call for Evidence’ on the current data
protection legislative framework in order to obtain views of organisations,
businesses and individuals on the current law.

To negotiate
effectively for a new EU data protection instrument, the Government needs
information about different aspects of the Data Protection Act 1998. This Call for
Evidence
seeks information from organisations, businesses, individuals and
other stakeholders about the current law on data protection. It is aimed at
everyone who has an interest in data protection, whether in the public sector,
private sector or third sector.

Evidence on all aspects of
the legislation is being sought, but particularly in regards to the definitions
used, data subjects’ rights, data controllers’ obligations, the powers and
penalties of the Information Commissioner, the 8 data principles-based
approach, exemptions and international transfers.  Evidence is requested by 6th October 2010.
