What guidelines have been used for the compilation of the Live Facial Recognition (LFR) watchlist and who has oversight?

Each deployment has an individual Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) and an application containing legal considerations such as justification and proportionately. Watch lists are unique and planned for each deployment. The Metropolitan Police Service has clear governance and a senior strategic lead who authorises the watch list. Since early 2018 Detective Chief Superintendent Ivan Balhatchet has approved these.
