Guidance for CCTV users published

Published: 15 June 2023

The Office of the Data Protection Authority has published new guidance for CCTV users to help them ensure compliance with local data protection law.
The newly published guidance is built around the seven data protection principles, and provides a step-by-step process for CCTV users to follow. 

This guidance is intended for those who are responsible for the operation of CCTV. 

It does not apply to the following two groups, but you are welcome to use it as an example of good practice to inform your operation of any recording equipment in these contexts: 
  1. Private householders who collect data for personal, family or household affairs.
  2. Journalists / media outlets who use recording equipment for journalistic, literary or artistic purposes.
