Code of practice on anonymisation and managing data protection risk

This code of practice describes the steps an organisation can take to ensure that anonymisation is conducted effectively, while retaining useful data. The code will be useful to any organisation which wants to turn personal data into anonymised information and distribute it later.

The decision-making flow-charts on page 15 are a particularly good place to start for organisations thinking about working with personal data.
