ICO UPDATES GUIDANCE ON TIMESCALES FOR DEALING WITH SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY REPORTS

Following a ruling by the Court of Justice of the European Union, the UK Information Commissioners Office has updated guidance on timescales for responding to a subject access request (SAR).  The timescale has now changed to reflect the day of receipt as ‘day one’, as opposed to the day after receipt.  For example, a SAR received on 3rd September should be responded to by 3rd October.  It has updated the Individual Rights pages to reflect this ruling.
