What the Data Protection (Charges and Information) Regulations say

The Regulations set out when data controllers will be required to provide information and pay a charge to the Informational Commissioner from 25 May in relation to their data processing activities. They also set out the charges payable, which vary according to the size of the organisation. Discounts are available when payment is made by direct debit.

The Regulations also set out what will be considered to be ‘exempt processing’. Exempt processing will not attract a charge or require information to be provided to the Information Commissioner.
