The Information Compliance Office has developed a Data Protection Annual Compliance Checklist for University Faculties, Departments, Divisions and other Institutions.  The checklist sets out a number of practical ‘housekeeping’ actions to be completed on an annual basis by individual University departments to help ensure their ongoing compliance with data protection law.


Checklist for 2022-23

The checklist for the academic year 2022-23 was issued in early March 2023.  Communications were sent directly to those departments (and equivalents) that had been expected to work through the actions and submit a completed copy by 14 July 2023. 

Online briefing sessions took place on 5 and 13 April 2023 and were aimed at Departmental Administrators (and equivalents) and others overseeing work on the checklist in their departments.  The sessions were not recorded but the slides are available.

Any smaller units that were not contacted directly nevertheless may use the checklist to help plan their work in this area.

Feedback has been given to departments on their completed checklists for 2022-23.


Past checklists

The checklist was first issued in November 2020 for the academic year 2020-21.  It was revised and reissued in November 2021 for the academic year 2021-22. These past versions are retained for reference but should no longer be used.
