The Association for Driving Licence Verification (ADLV), of which Jaama is a member, is to work closely with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) on the implementation of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The new Regulation comes into effect on May 25 and requires changes to be made to the Access to Drivers’ Data (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 be held.
•Required audit trails and what happens to the data afterwards.
•The right to be forgotten.
•Potential changes in drivers’ mandates and the associated terms and processes.
•Required training issues.
Kevin Curtis, ADLV director, said: “GDPR is the biggest data challenge on the horizon for fleet managers. The ADLV will be advising members on how to prepare fully for the changes ahead.”
Donna Jones, DVLA senior commercial data sharing manager, said: “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, in readiness for the new legislation.”
