GDPR comes under focus for new ADLV team
The changes, made in accordance with the association’s founding charter, see Licence Check’s Terry Hiles elected as deputy chair to support existing chair, Malcolm Maycock of Licence Bureau. Chris Thornton of DriveTech joins as treasurer and Mark Sugden of anti-fraud specialist GBG takes over as secretary and head of Marketing. Kevin Curtis of Driving Monitor remains as technical director.
The new team will address future opportunities, including upcoming issues such as GDPR, while building on the association’s successes including the initial ADVL set-up and continuing to raise fleet data access issues with the DVLA.
Terry Hiles said: “The next few years will be extremely challenging and exciting for our members as the market is experiencing strong growth. On one hand, this is being driven by changes in legislation and sentencing guidelines, requiring improved driver risk assessment.
“On the other hand, there is the widespread inclusion of licence checking as an integral feature in new driver related software applications and recommended operating standards. We also face the introduction of the most significant and far reaching changes in the law relating to the management and processing of personal data in the past twenty years: GDPR.
“Guiding our members through these changes and looking at opportunities to expand our membership will dominate our agenda for the foreseeable future.”
