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 have been sent directly to those departments (and equivalents) that are expected to work through the actions and submit a completed copy (to by Friday 14 July 2023.  Full background and guidance notes are included within the checklist itself.

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 have not been contacted directly nevertheless may wish to use the checklist to help plan their work in this area.


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.
