Age Appropriate Design Code laid before Parliament

Posted on 23 June 2020

The Information Commissioner’s new Age Appropriate Design Code has now been placed in front of Parliament and the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has published its explanatory memorandum. The code relates to any business providing online services aimed at, or accessed by children and sets out 15 standards that companies need to implement in order to ensure that their services appropriately safeguard and fairly process children's' personal data. No timings yet have been announced for its introduction, however, it has been announced that there will be a 12-month transition period from the date the Code comes into force.

For more information on this topic, please see our previous guidance on safeguarding children's data protection rights and the Code.
