Management of a CCTV system to keep within Data Protection Act law needs to have proper checklists, forms, CCTV warning signs and procedures tied together by a CODE OF PRACTICE. Without all of this you might as well not have registered, because you are still not complying with the Act.

We offer a MANAGEMENT SYSTEM that includes all necessary forms and a relevant CCTV SYSTEM CODE OF PRACTICE. That's protection! Protection for you. Protection against falling foul of the law.

Our CCTV Data Management Pack is designed to fit into your existing Quality Standard system, or it can be used alone as a separate Quality System. In either case, using this system will ensure that your recorded CCTV evidence is always likely to be acceptable to the police and Courts of Law, and of course will comply with Data Protection Act for CCTV systemsHere is a sample form....

After all, that is usually the reason for using CCTV, and trying to operate a system without documentation or conforming to all aspects of Data Protection Act Law will inevitably create loopholes for defendants. If you do not have proper records the police will probably not be able to use any of the data that you have recorded, and they will possibly prosecute you too for non compliance.

The official recommended Code of Practice was revised in 2008.

To check the revised Code of Practice for CCTV 2008, with guidance for correct installation and operation procedures, see the Home Office Surveillance Camera Code of Practice HERE.
