Wales Accord on the Sharing of Personal Information (WASPI)
The Wales Accord on the Sharing of Personal Information (WASPI) and its supporting documentation provides a framework to govern the sharing of personal information by public sector, third sector and private service providers.
WASPI is the single information sharing framework for Wales and provides for the development of Information Sharing Protocols and Data Disclosure Agreements. Its use underpins effective collaboration across organisations, helps overcome perceived barriers and enables staff to share information safely and legally.
The Information Commissioner, Christopher Graham has given his full support to WASPI noting that it provides “a well considered and structured approach” and “a common standard, which should help to ensure not only a consistent approach but also legal compliance, and as such there are real benefits to its adoption across Wales”.
For further information and advice as well as details of training opportunities please visit the Wales Accord on the Sharing of Personal Information website.
