UK to enhance cooperation between data protection and competition authorities
The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) have published a joint statement, setting out their shared views on the relationship between competition and data protection in the digital economy.
The ICO and CMA affirm that rather than competition and data protection being in opposition, they are complementary agendas. The regulators have committed to work together to find regulatory solutions that achieve good competition and data protection outcomes.
The ICO and CMA are committed to continuing working together on projects that will put this joint statement into practice.
