GDPR compliance guide for vehicle cameras
Companies considering vehicle camera systems with recording capability should be aware of GDPR as should those with existing systems in place.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU wide data privacy law which comes in to force on the 25th May 2018, it has already been implemented in other EU countries and supersedes the existing Data Protection Act (DPA). The UK government has committed that it will continue with GDPR following Brexit.
Although there are complex compliance requirements for some business sectors, GDPR compliance for vehicle fleets with camera systems is actually straightforward and revolves around respecting privacy, protecting data and making sure those being recorded are aware.
