On the 25 May 2018 the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force.
British Triathlon wants to make sure that all clubs are aware of the importance of GDPR and have taken the necessary steps to demonstrate our compliance by May next year. To assist you, here is the link to a 12 step checklist which you can action now to prepare for the introduction of the GDPR.
Many of the GDPR’s main principles are much the same as those in the current Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA), so if you are complying fully with the current legislation then most of your approach to compliance will remain valid under the GDPR and will be a strong starting point to build from. However, there are a number of new elements and significant enhancements, so there will be some things you will need to do for the first time and some things that you will need to do differently.
Please make sure that you take the time to read the document. Any further queries should be directed to the Information Commissioner’s Office (IOC).
