Accountability is one of the data protection principles - it makes organisations responsible for complying with the General Data Protection Regulation and states that organisations must be able to demonstrate their compliance. Accountability obligations are ongoing. Organisations must review and, where necessary, update the measures which they put in place to comply with Data Protection law.

More information on data protection principles can be found on the ICO’s website www.ico.org.uk
