The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has responded to the Lords Communications and Digital Committee's call for evidence on Large Language Models (LLMs). The ICO believes that while data protection provides a risk-based, context-specific framework for the governance of LLMs, risks should nevertheless be evaluated based on the intended purposes and potential impacts. The ICO sees the data protection principles as a robust foundation, but practical support tailored to specific applications will better support responsible innovation. This support may require additional resources to supplement existing in-house expertise. As AI continues to evolve, sustained investment in UK regulators' oversight capabilities is necessary. The ICO welcomes further engagement and discussion with the Committee to translate its ambitions into effective, proportionate governance that unlocks the benefits of LLMs while safeguarding the public.
