26th Oct (2017)Data Protection Act update - 24.10.2017

Some of you may be aware that the Data Protection Act is being replaced by the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) in May 2018.
This will increase the regulation in this area and may require clubs and associations to change the way they process personal details provided by their members. If you already have good data protection processes in place you may find that the changes are relatively small but the new regulations will increase the potential penalties if you are not adopting good practices.
EH are working on the implications of the new Regulations and will get guidance out as soon as possible but some key definitions have yet to be confirmed and it may well be the new year before the full details are known.
In the meantime the Sport and Recreation Alliance has issued some good generic guidance which can be found here.
