We have launched a new consultation on the Code of Fundraising Practice, which will enable charities, fundraisers and members of the public to provide feedback on proposed changes to the Code regarding data protection.
The consultation seeks to update the Code to mirror the upcoming GDPR legislation and address the issues identified in the number of penalty notices levied by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) in the last two years.
It also seeks to ensure that rules on data protection are more accessible by improving signposting to existing ICO and Fundraising Regulator guidance, as well as adding and expanding definitions for key terms.
The consultation will run until Friday 8th December and marks an important step in ensuring that our guidance and terminology is consistent with forthcoming GDPR legislation. More information on the proposed changes and how to respond can be
found on our website.
