UK IOC publishes Good Practice Note for professionals

Just received a press release that the UK OIC has published a good practice notice (about 3 pages long) for professionals when complying with the Data Protection Act 1998.
The Data Protection Act gives everyone a right to see information that is held about them including any opinions,” said David Smith, Deputy Information Commissioner. “Professionals need to be aware of this and understand what action is required when an individual challenges one of their opinions."
For more on this, see here (pdf).
