The Association For Driving Licence
Verification (www.ADLV.co.uk ) is to
work closely with the DVLA on the
implementation of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) for the ADD service.
By helping to explain the GDPR rules for its members’ fleet customers, the ADLV
believes that discussions will help to define the industry standard.
The ADLV will support members with an
advisory document for fleet managers, which will include such topics as:
- The content of
Privacy Notices on how the data will be used and how long information can
- Required Audit
trails and what happens to the data afterwards.
- The right to be
- Potential changes in
the mandate and the associated terms and processes.
- Required Training
Commenting on the new regulations, Terry Hiles ADLV
Director and Commercial Director of Licence Check Ltd., noted, “GDPR is going
to present a challenge to a worryingly large number of businesses which have
hitherto assumed that sitting beside the driver to look at their licence
details using the DVLA’s service for individuals is sufficient evidence of
consent. As an association, speaking to
businesses of all sizes in the UK, we find that our members encounter this on a
daily basis. The reality is though that
this service is for the individual driver’s use only.”
Commenting on the joint discussions with
the DVLA, Kevin Curtis ADLV director and Managing Director of Driving Monitor
added, “GDPR is the biggest data challenge on the horizon for fleet managers.
However, the ADLV will be advising our members on how to prepare fully for the
changes ahead. We are delighted to be working with the DVLA as a new contract
is being prepared for ADD users.”
“ADLV aim to publish a membership advisory
document early 2018 and will be available to answer queries for members online.
For her part, Donna Jones, Senior
Commercial Data Sharing Manager at DVLA Commented,
“We welcome the advice that
is to be given to ADLV members. The DVLA has been undertaking a detailed review
of all its contracts in relation to GDPR, including the ADD contract which we
expect to rollout in March 2018, in readiness for the new legislation being
implemented from 25 May 2018.”
