In a blog post, 2 March, the U.K. Information Commissioner's Office released its first specific GDPR implementation guidance, focusing on consent, for public consultation. The ICO will accept feedback through 31 March. The draft guidance is extensive, focusing on how consent requirements in the GDPR deviate from the Data Protection Act, what counts as valid consent, and the mechanical aspects of gathering, documenting, and managing consent. "Getting this right should be seen as essential to good customer service," writes ICO Interim Head of Policy and Engagement Jo Pedder. "It will put people at the centre of the relationship, and can help build customer confidence and trust."
