14/06/2023 | ICO

The UK Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has published its one-year review of the Age-Appropriate Design Code.

The report outlines what was learned during the development and implementation of the code, as well as its impact. Over 50 organisations have been assessed for conformance with the code, with 11 ongoing open investigations. The ICO has also audited 10 online services and clarified that adult-only services are in scope if they are likely to be accessed by children. 

The evaluation also recognises the success of implementing the code since its inception, with nearly half of the surveyed businesses conforming fully. The ICO is currently considering long-term strategies to further improve children's online experiences over the next two to five years.
