Data gathering: Relevant data-holders and relevant data: Overview
There are 16 types of relevant data-holders that we can require to provide relevant data.
The term relevant data-holders include a person who was a data-holder but who ceased to be a data-holder less than four years from the date of the data-holder notice.
For example, a person who used to be a solicitor but who retired last year would still be a data-holder as a solicitor.
The Data-Gathering Powers (Relevant Data) Regulations 2012 (SI 2012/847) specify the relevant data for each class of data-holder.
This chapter outlines who are relevant data-holders and what is relevant data for each data-holder.
