General Data Protection Regulation - Compliance in Practice

After four years of preparation and debate the GDPR was finally approved by the EU Parliament on 14 April 2016. It will be directly applicable in all member states in 2018 with the Enforcement date: 25 May 2018.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.

GDPR will introduce new contractual and legislative responsibilities on ABI members when receiving clients’ instructions as Data Processor or even as joint Data Controller and stringent requirements apply when working inter-agency.

This ABI GDPR dedicated Workshop will cover the essential documentation and thought process necessary to remain compliant.

This 5-hour workshop [with 1-hour break] offers a small group of Members the opportunity to learn how to apply the new regulation with practical demonstration on delegates' own live cases, tackling the data protection impact assessment process and how to compose a GDPR compliant Proposal, whilst meeting the client's expectations.

The Workshop will discuss:

  • The ABI Members' suggested Data Protection Policy
  • Member's Data Audit
  • Members' Personal Data Audit Trail (Case Management)
  • Data Protection Impact Assessment with talk through application on delegates' own live case
  • The case Proposal with development of sample Proposals based on delegates' own live case
  • Model Terms of Business (Member and Client) update and how to apply
  • Model Terms of Business (Member to Member) and how to apply
  • Security of Data in transit
  • An introduction to Report Writing (time permitting)

By upholding professional values and its extensive membership due diligence capability the Association of British Investigators [ABI] has always been the preferred choice for the varied commercial and domestic clients, as is evident in its recognition and accreditation. However, recent developments in data protection raises two very compelling reasons why every professional client needs to pay closer attention to how and with who it interacts when outsourcing confidential instructions of an investigative or litigation support nature:

First, the General Data Protection Regulation 2016 and its application into UK law in The Data Protection Act 2018 imposes a number of obligations on data controllers and processors, roles clearly identified in the relationship between a consumer of investigative services and the chosen agent. Among the responsibilities is the requirement to check that the processor is competent to process the personal data in accordance with all the requirements of the GDPR. The assessment should take into account the nature of the processing and the risks to the data subjects. This is because Article 28.1 says that the controller must only use a processor that can provide 'sufficient guarantees' in terms of its resources and expertise, to implement technical and organisational measures to comply with the GDPR and protect the rights of data subjects.

Secondly, the GDPR envisages that adherence by a processor to an approved code of conduct or certification scheme may be used to help controllers demonstrate that they have chosen a suitable processor.


There is no greater method for a data controller (the client) to demonstrate compliance with the above than by insisting the preferred choice for investigative services be selected from the ABI membership. With its Code of Ethics & Professional Standards, recognised and adopted by British Standards Institution in its Code of Practice for the Provision of Investigative Services (BS102000), the ABI is the benchmark of professionalism in the sector.
