CCTV Logbook helps your system stay GDPR compliant by providing best practice advisories in line with the 12 guiding principles of the Surveillance Camera Code of Practice.
The Surveillance Camera Code of Practice, originally published in 2013, provides a set of 12 Guiding Principles for organisations looking to use CCTV to ensure they do not cross over from providing protection and support for individuals and communities to being seen as breaching their human rights, particularly their right to privacy. This Code of Practice is only binding on “relevant authorities” which includes law enforcement authorities, such as the police and local authorities but there has been work since its publication to encourage other organisations to voluntarily comply with the 12 Guiding Principles.
While the Surveillance Camera Commissioner (SCC) has stressed that CCTV good practice goes beyond simply data protection many of the requirements laid out in the Guiding Principles are contained within the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018). This incorporated the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and this law is enforced by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). CCTV Logbook can help you meet best practice compliance and legal obligations if you sign up to our compliance package.
