Data Protection Compliance

Progress Statement

In August 2013 the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) carried out a consensual audit of University of Arts London.

University of the Arts London (UAL) is committed to upholding information rights and to continuing to work towards best practice in compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

UAL welcomed the opportunity to receive advice, assistance and guidance from the ICO to assist UAL in meeting this commitment. We will continue to work closely with the ICO as part of our on-going development of an Information Management compliance programme and have an agreed plan of action to address the areas of UAL’s handling and management of records and other information.

As part of this plan UAL is undergoing a review of its Information Management policies, processes, procedures, IT systems and training needs in line with the ICO’s recommendations with the aim of developing a ‘Best of Class’ Information Management strategy for Higher Education establishments.
