The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has opened a public consultation fornew draft guidance that outlines how penalty notices are issued and fines calculated under the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR) and Data Protection Act 2018. The draft Data Protection Fining Guidance explains the legal framework that gives the ICO the power to impose fines, the circumstances in which a penalty notice would be appropriate, and how fine amounts are calculated. The draft guidance is not applicable to fines under the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 and does not change the ICO's current approach to public sector enforcement.
The consultation closes on 27 November 2023.
