The 1998 Data Protection Act came into force in March 2000 and imposes major responsibilities on Higher Education institutions in terms of the management of personal data. The Lancaster University Data Protection Project 2000 aims to study the implications of the new Act and provide practical guidelines to the sector on how to comply.

This website will be regularly updated until December 2003.

Currently available here are:

i) An overview of the Project

ii) A brief summary of the Implications of the 1998 Data Protection Act

iii) A list of specific guidelines to be produced by the Project, including those currently available for consultation.
