ICO’s right of access for competent authorities guidance

The right to make a subject access request allows individuals to find out what personal data is held about them for law enforcement purposes and to obtain a copy of that data. Following on from our initial guidance on this right, the ICO has now drafted detailed guidance which explains in greater detail the rights that individuals have to access their personal data and the obligations on competent authorities. The draft guidance also explores situations involving joint controllers, how to deal with requests involving the personal data of others and the restrictions that are most likely to apply in practice when handling a request.

Note: This is a draft version.
