Hi all,

Just spotted this news item on the ICO website relating to SAR responses. This means you must respond one day earlier than previously specified. Take a look:

__________________________________________________________________________

'Following a ruling by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), we have updated our guidance on timescales for responding to a subject access request (SAR), as well as other individual rights requests. The timescale has now changed to reflect the day of receipt as ‘day one’, as opposed to the day after receipt. For example, a SAR received on 3 September should be responded to by 3 October.'

__________________________________________________________________________

These dates are very important since you can be fined for simply failing to respond in time. Make sure you reply to any SAR well within the 30 days! Don’t take any chances!

Good luck all.
