GDPR complaint lodged with UK data watchdog over coronavirus Test and Trace programme

Open Rights Group has instructed lawyers to lodge a complaint with the UK’s data watchdog over the rollout of the Test and Trace system because it says the system breaches the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The complaint to the ICO relates to the failure by the NHS and Public Health England (PHE), which runs the Test and Trace programme, to conduct a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA), which is required under the GDPR before processing of data in high-risk situations.
