Data Protection (Notification and Notification Fees) (Amendment) Regulations 2009 come into force

Implementation date: 1 October 2009

The Regulations amend the fee that must be paid by a data controller to register with the Information Commissioner. A data controller must be included on the register of data controllers maintained by the Information Commissioner in order to process personal data and pays a registation fee. The flat fee is being replaced by a two-tiered structure. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
