ADLV and DVLA work on GDPR changes
The Association for Driving Licence Verification (ADLV) and the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) are working to support fleets with the implementation of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation.
Effective from 25 May 2018, GDPR replaces the Data Protection Act and brings much more onerous requirements on data privacy laws. This will impact on fleets in many areas, including information from telematics devices as well as licence data.
The ADLV’s work with the DVLA will generate an advisory document – intended to help provide an industry standard – that will cover areas including the content of Privacy Notices on how the data will be used and how long information can be held, required audit trails and what happens to the data afterwards and required training.
Donna Jones, senior commercial data sharing manager at the DVLA, commented: “We welcome the advice that is to be given to ADLV members. The DVLA has been undertaking a detailed review of all its contracts in relation to GDPR, including the ADD contract which we expect to rollout in March 2018, in readiness for the new legislation being implemented from 25 May 2018.”
