The ICO has asked for comments on its proposed activities for the three years from April 2013 to March 2016. It has published a draft plan that sets out the strategic outcomes the ICO is seeking and how the ICO intends to achieve these results, together with details of work completed so far, and deadlines for final completion.

Future strategic outcomes include:

  • Ensuring that a high proportion of individuals have a basic awareness of their information rights, coupled with ready access to information on how to exercise those rights.
  • Ensuring that there is a high level of awareness in organisations of their wider obligations under information rights law, with those obligations being routinely met in practice.
  • Working towards a legislative framework for information rights that is integrated and consistent, underpins good information rights practice, furthers the upholding of information rights and enables the ICO to be an effective regulator.

The consultation closed on 31 January 2013.
