CCTV Legislation

What do you need know if you are installing a CCTV surveillance system?
 
In 2012 The Protection of Freedoms Act was introduced to monitor the use of CCTV in public spaces. The aim of the act was to balance the need for public surveillance and an individual’s right to privacy. In addition to this, all places that had CCTV installed on their premises must be compliant with The Data Protection Act (1998).
 
As of May 2018 when the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was introduced all who were operating CCTV systems became obliged to inform people that their personal data is being collected. These laws are unanimous whether your installation is in a public place, workplace or is in a domestic setting.

The best way to make sure your customer is in compliance with both old and new legislation is for them to have numerous CCTV warning signs displayed that have been approved by data protection.

We stock a range of CCTV Warning Signs from A6 right through to A3 window stickers available for domestic installations or larger A3 plaques for larger areas.

Whatever your customers’ needs are, we will have something to suit them.
