Print

As of 14 January 2019, The Office of the Data Protection Authority (ODPA) is the new name for the local data protection regulator.

This replaces the previous name of The Office of the Data Protection Commissioner.

This re-naming formally recognises the legal body of the Data Protection Authority which was established in May 2018 and is defined in Part XI of The Data Protection (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2017.

The Data Protection Authority is made up of: a Chair, five voting members, and the Data Protection Commissioner is an ex-officio and non-voting member. The Data Protection Authority delegates responsibility for most of the day-to-day regulatory activities to The Office of the Data Protection Authority which employs the Data Protection Commissioner, the Deputy Data Protection Commissioner and other staff.
