Since 2018, my Department has not received any complaints from a member of the public with regard to GDPR and data information requests, neither directly to the Data Protection Officer or the Customer Services Officer.

All data information requests, also known as Subject Access Requests, have been accepted and fully processed as follows:

Year Data Information Requests received(Subject Access Requests)
2018 0
2019 4
2020 2
2021 to date 0

My Department has published information on our website advising members of the public as to the process of making a ‘Subject Access Request’ under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as well as a privacy notice which includes information about data subject rights and access to personal data, as well as contact details for our Data Protection Officer.
