If You Operate CCTV From Your Property

John Lennard (NottsWatch, Administrator, Nottinghamshire) writes: If you operate CCTV from your property, please read the recommended guidance and, if applicable, register at https://ico.org.uk/registration/cctv to ensure that you are compliant with the new GDPR regulations that came in to force on 25 May.

See: CCTV Leaflet


  1. NB: From 25 May 2018, people who use CCTV for domestic purposes, ie to monitor their property, even if it films beyond the boundaries of their property will be exempt from paying a fee under data protection law.


  2. Does anyone know how the Regulations affect the use of dashcams, as these gather personal data (location, number plates, potentially faces) ?
