The new Code, In the picture: A data protection code of practice for surveillance cameras and personal information, helps organisations comply with data protection law when using modern technological systems and devices.
It replaces the 2008 Code on CCTV, and is updated to cover technological and practical developments such as use of digital recording devices, automatic number plate recognition systems, drone cameras and body cameras.
The code also refers to other relevant laws such as the Freedom of Information, Protection of Freedoms and Human Rights Acts.
