2. Explain how legal requirements and codes of practice inform practice in handling information
The Information Commissioner s first statutory duty is to promote the following of good practice in the handling of personal information. [ Good practice? means practice that appears to the Commissioner to be desirable, having regard to the interests of individuals and the organisations that process personal information about them. Good practice includes, but is not limited to, compliance with
the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the Act). The Commissioner has produced this framework code to help organisations to adopt good practice when sharing information about people. The framework code is intended to be of use to all organisations involved in information sharing throughout the UK, including voluntary bodies. However, some of it will be of most relevance to public sector organisations. The framework code should be of use even where there is a statutory requirement to share information. Using the framework code will help organisations to make sure that they address all the main data protection compliance issues that are likely to arise when sharing information. This in turn should help organisations and their staff to make well-informed decisions about sharing personal information. There are two main sorts of information sharing. The first involves two or more organisations sharing information between them. This could be done by giving access to each other s information systems or by setting up a separate shared database. This may lead to the specific disclosure of a limited amount of information on a one-off basis or the regular sharing of large amounts of information, for example bulk matching name and address information in two databases. The second involves the sharing of information between the various parts of a single organisation, for example between a local authority s various departments. The content of the framework code should be relevant to both types of information sharing. The framework code is for use mainly in circumstances where information is being shared on a routine, systematic basis. However, in some cases information is shared in a more ad hoc way. ]
