Anonymisation: managing data protection risk code of practice

By UK's Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) |

The code explains the issues surrounding the anonymisation of personal data, and the disclosure of data once it has been anonymised. It explains the relevant legal concepts and tests in the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA). The code provides good practice advice that will be relevant to all organisations that need to convert personal data into a form in which individuals are no longer identifiable.
