In the picture: A data protection code of practice for surveillance cameras and personal information

This code provides good practice advice for those involved in operating CCTV and other surveillance camera devices that view or record individuals, and covers other information that relates to individuals, for example vehicle registration marks captured by ANPR equipment. This code uses the terms ‘surveillance system(s)’, ‘CCTV’ and ‘information’ throughout for ease of reference. Information held by organisations that is about individuals is covered by the DPA and the guidance in this code will help organisations comply with these legal obligations.
