People appealing against rulings by the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) will face a new tribunal structure from January next year. The Information Tribunal, which hears appeals on ICO rulings, will become part of a wider system. Under the new regime, which awaits Parliamentary approval, very serious or very complex cases …
and the result will be...
No change - just more delay, and more opportunity to strike out pesky complaints from the sheep who believe the ICO will actually do anything which either would help or adversely affect a data controller.
I have given up with the ICO and just use the provisions in section 7 of the 1998 Data Protection Act to go to court myself now.
Epic fail -the government has totally emasculated a not very effective organisation, It is cheaper for a company to just pay lipservice to the DPA Act and the miniscule chance of getting a fine than to abide by the spirit of the Act.
