Draft GDPR Guidance receives a significant response

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) recently announced that it has received a large number of responses to its consultation on the draft  GDPR Consent guidance.  

The GDPR Consent guidance sets down the ICO’s recommended approach to compliance and what counts as valid consent. It also provides practical help to decide when to rely on consent and when to look at alternatives. The consultation, which closed on 31 March 2017, has already received over 300 responses from organisations across a variety of sectors, along with interested members of the public.

The ICO is currently analysing the feedback and expects to have a final version of the GDPR Consent guidance, along with a summary of responses, ready for publication in June 2017.
