On January 8, 2009, the British Standards Institute (BSI) invited the public to submit comments on a new draft standard designed to help organizations comply with the Data Protection Act 1998. The standard is expected to be published in June this year, and once in place will help organizations implement a framework to better manage personal information in compliance with the Data Protection Act. The closing date for comments is March 31, 2009. A copy of the draft standard is available here.
