Datonomy reports on the new fee levels being set by the ICO for Data Protection notification. Small organisations won’t see any hike from the existing £35 annual fee (free in certain cases), but for “tier 2” data controllers (250+ staff or an annual turnover of £25.9 million or more) the fee will rise to £500. The change was recommended in the review conducted by Richard Thomas and Dr Mark Walport last year, and is detailed in the new Data Protection (Notification and Notification Fees) (Amendment) Regulations 2009 which were laid before Parliament last week.
