Veritau has joined a number of public bodies across North Yorkshire and York in signing the Multi Agency Information Sharing Protocol.  The Protocol is intended to ensure that data sharing between partners is compliant with the Data Protection Act.  Current signatories to the Protocol include:

  • City of York Council
  • North Yorkshire County Council
  • North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service
  • North Yorkshire Police
  • Scarborough Borough Council
  • York Teaching Hospital Foundation Trust
  • Richmondshire District Council                      

The Protocol provides an overarching set of principles that all signatories agree to follow whenever they share data.  The intention is to simplify and standardise information sharing processes between organisations hence reducing delays and eliminating some of the perceived barriers to information sharing.  This approach encourages compliance with the Data Protection Act by providing a framework for partner organisations to follow when information sharing is being considered.  This in turn promotes public confidence that personal data is being processed correctly and safeguarded from inappropriate or accidental disclosure.
