Do I need to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO)?

Under the UK GDPR, if you are a controller or processor, you must appoint a DPO if:

  • you are a public authority or body (except for courts acting in their judicial capacity);
  • your core activities require large-scale, regular and systematic monitoring of individuals (for example, online behaviour tracking); or
  • your core activities consist of large-scale processing of special categories of data or data relating to criminal convictions and offences.

You may wish to DPO if you wish, even if you aren’t required to.

If you decide that you don’t need to appoint a DPO, either voluntarily or because you don’t meet the above criteria, you should record this decision.

The ICO’s website features a tool to help you decide whether or not you need to appoint a DPO. You can access it here.
