Privacy impact assessments

We publish a register of all Privacy Impact Assessments (PIAs) we conduct.

A PIA is a systematic assessment of a project’s impact on the privacy of individuals and identifies steps for minimising that impact. PIAs are compulsory for projects with a new or changed way of handling personal information that is likely to have a significant impact on the privacy of individuals.
