General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was introduced by the new Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018) on the 25 May 2018.

The Parish Council has carried out an extensive exercise to establish a position of readiness and compliance with the new regulations.

This has included appropriate roll-out of awareness and training.  A suite of dedicated policies and procedures have been prepared which have been formally issued and bought under configuration control.  All members of the Parish Council have read and agreed the policies and procedures.  A register of Council members agreement to compliance with the documents is held by the Parish Clerk.
