CCTV

ico cctv licensing solicitorsIf you record images from a CCTV system, then you may need to register with the Information Commisioner’s Office.  Failing to do so can be a criminal offence and there have been prosecutions of publicans.

To check whether you need to register, the ICO has an online self-assessment tool which can be found here.  A guidance document has also been produced on operating CCTV and the situations when a system can be justified as a condition on a premises licence.

Our solicitors can take you through the process or can provide representation if you should find yourself on the wrong side of the law and facing prosecution.
