ICO revised CCTV Code of Practice
Since the CCTV code of practice was first issued in 2000, there have been substantial advances in the way CCTV is used, the technology employed and the wider legal environment in which it operates.
The 2008 edition is now available and it is primarily aimed at businesses and organisations who routinely capture images of individuals on their CCTV equipment with the objective of helping ensure that good practice tandards are adopted by those who operate CCTV.
The code covers the use of CCTV and other systems which capture images of identifiable individuals or information relating to individuals for any of the following purposes:
• Seeing what an individual is doing e.g. monitoring them in a shop or walking down the street.
• Potentially taking some action in relation to an individual e.g. handing the images over to the police to investigate a crime.
• Using the images of an individual in some way that will affect their privacy e.g. for example passing images on to a TV company.
