UK Ministry of Justice has been slammed for poor handling of sar requests

The UK Ministry of Justice has been slammed for poor handling of requests for personal records made under data protection laws – and told to fix the 700-plus backlog by October.

In an enforcement notice [PDF] issued yesterday, Blighty's data protection watchdog, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), said the justice department had been too slow in processing requests from people asking what information was held on them.

The Data Protection Act requires that organisations respond to these subject access requests – without undue delay – to say whether it is processing their personal data, and if so, what data that is.
