UK: Information Commissioner's Office Announces Commencement of Application Period for Sandbox Beta Phase

On March 29, 2019, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) launched the beta phase of its sandbox, aiming to support companies using personal data in their effort to create more innovative products and services that are beneficial for the general public.

Applications can, as of this date, be submitted by organisations wishing to participate and use personal data in their projects under the guidance of ICO experts that will be working alongside to ensure the applicants’ compliance with the regulatory framework.

For this purpose, successful applicants should expect a visit to their premises from an ICO specialist, with the aim of designing and putting in place a tailor-made sandbox plan.
