Authorisation and publication
The DPIA report should be signed by your Information Asset Owner (IAO). The IAO will be the Deputy Director or Head of Division or the relevant person in the business area sponsoring the Bill/proposals.
Before signing the DPIA report, an IAO should ensure that she/he is satisfied that the impact assessment is robust and has addressed all the relevant issues.
By signing the DPIA report, the IAO is confirming that the impact of the policy has been sufficiently assessed against individuals’ right to privacy.
The results of the impact assessment must be published in the eRDM with the phrase “DPIA report” and the name of the project or initiative in the title.
Details of any relevant information asset must be added to the Information Asset Register, with a note that a DPIA has been conducted.
I confirm that the impact of the Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Bill has been sufficiently assessed against the needs of the privacy duty:
