The National Archives releases new guidance
Take a look at the latest guidance releases from The National Archives.
A consultation draft of TNA’s ‘Guide to Archiving Personal Data’ can now be found on the TNA website, go to http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/information-management/legislation/data-protection/
This guidance is being developed together with ARA and colleagues in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Intended for archiving and archives, the guidance is not intended for researchers, or as general data protection guidance, or for people reusing information found in archives. ICO is best source for general advice about data protection. The overall message is to continue to archive personal data whilst respecting the privacy of people, the same message as has applied over the last twenty years of working under the Data Protection Act.
Additional GDPR guidance for the archive sector, including FAQs, is now live on the TNA website at http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/archives-sector/advice-and-guidance/managing-your-collection/archives-data-protection-law-uk/
