ICO publishes data protection and journalism code of practice

06/07/2023 | ICO

The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has released a code of practice for using personal information in journalism. The code offers practical guidance on how to comply with data protection laws and best practices when using personal information. Reference notes are also available to provide more information on legislation and case law. It is important to note that the code only covers data protection law and is not concerned with media standards as a whole. The code has been shaped by feedback from media organisations, industry representatives, and civil society during the consultation process.
