Consultation description

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is the UK’s independent body set up to uphold information rights. The Information Commissioner’s data protection activities are funded by charges paid by data controllers (individuals and organisations that process personal data).

There are a number of exemptions for data controllers from paying the charges. This consultation is seeking to obtain views as to whether the current exemptions from paying charges are still appropriate and whether there should be any new exemptions.

This consultation will help inform the Government’s decision as to whether any exemptions should be removed and whether any new exemptions should be introduced. Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) the Government is required to ensure an adequate level of funding to the ICO. Therefore the impact of any changes to charge exemptions on the ICO’s resources will be given due consideration.
