What To Consider With CCTV Regulations In Businesses (2018)

With GDPR becoming an increasing concern for the majority of businesses, it’s important to ensure that every aspect of your business meets all the necessary GDPR requirements. If you have CCTV or are planning to install CCTV on your business premises, you’ll need to ensure that you are complying with the following regulations:

CCTV Within Your Business

  • You must ensure that people are aware that they are being recorded. The most common method of this is through the use of display signs that are clear and visible.

  • You must inform the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) that you are installing CCTV within the premises and tell them why you need the CCTV.

  • You should control who can see the recordings, and make sure the system is only used for the purpose it was intended for.

  • If your CCTV system is set up to detect crime, you shouldn’t then use the cameras to monitor the work done by your staff.

  • The public has the right to see any images of them that have been recorded by your CCTV cameras.
