GDPR Guidance (14) Guidance on the use of CCTV

Closed Circuit Television (“CCTV”)is used by many, ranging from household setups, to workplace and business security and monitoring systems to large-scale public sector implementations, such as in city centres and travel control. The cost of basic CCTV cameras, including those with the ability to transmit captured data wirelessly, and to store and display it via internet services, is now well within the reach of ordinary members of the public. Further, although its usage is generally considered to be advantageous in the reduction and prevention of crime, there are concerns about their intrusion into the privacy of individuals, particularly when they are used without appropriate controls or where unnecessary.

This document provides good practice guidance for those involved in operating CCTV and other surveillance camera devices, to better understand their responsibilities and obligations in regard to data protection when using CCTV.
