Dear HM Passport Office,

Article 37 of the General Data Protection Regulation requires the designation of a data protection officer, if an organisation is carrying out particular activities.

https://gdpr-info.eu/art-37-gdpr/

I am trying to find out how organisations chose who would be the designated DPO, based on their professional qualities, expert knowledge of data protection law and practices and the ability to fulfil the tasks referred to in Article 39.

If the name of your DPO is not listed on the Information Commissioner’s Register,, then I am happy for you to redact this, however please provide any recorded information you hold which shows how your organisation went about designating a DPO.

Yours faithfully,

Alison Benson
