CCTV ICO compliance: Signs that get you noticed for the right reason
It’s been a year since the compliance regulations governing the use of CCTV were tightened.
Issued by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the CCTV Code of Practice brings video security systems within the scope of the Data Protection Act (DPA).
One of the aspects easily overlooked is the requirement for signs to inform visitors or passers-by that CCTV is in operation on and around your premises. The code of practice says signs should:
- Be clearly visible and readable
- Contain details of the organisation operating the system, the purpose for using the surveillance system and who to contact about the scheme (where these things are not obvious to those being monitored)
- Include basic contact details such as a simple website address, telephone number or email contact
- Be an appropriate size depending on context, for example, whether they are viewed by pedestrians or car drivers
