ICO changes guidance on timescales for responding to a subject access request
Article by:Makbool Javaid |
Following a ruling by the Court of Justice of the European Union, the ICO has updated its guidance on timescales for responding to a subject access request (SAR), as well as other individual rights requests. The timescale has now changed to reflect the day of receipt as ‘day one’, as opposed to the day after receipt. For example, a SAR received on 3 September should be responded to by 3 October. The ICO have also updated its Individual Rights pages to reflect this ruling.
