The 25th of May is not very far away now. If you follow the practical steps in our series of emails, you should be getting into good shape but, if you need someone by your side to get you over the line, we are here to help.
STEP 5 – SUBJECT ACCESS REQUESTS
You should update your procedures and plan how you will handle requests to take account of the new rules:
- In most cases you will not be able to charge for complying with a request.
- You will have a month to comply, rather than the current 40 days.
- You can refuse or charge for requests that are manifestly unfounded or excessive.
- If you refuse a request, you must tell the individual why and that they have the right to complain to the supervisory authority and to a judicial remedy. You must do this without undue delay and at the latest, within one month.
