Back to DEC

In September, the UK Government launched its consultation on reforming Britain’s data laws. Among the government’s ambitious plans are two pillars: “Removing barriers to responsible innovation” and “reducing burdens on business.” As part of these goals, the government is considering reforming Article 22 of the GDPR—the right to opt-out of automated decision-making. This roundtable discussion will take a closer look at Article 22 and consider what kinds of changes are feasible and desirable. Can the benefits of automation be encouraged without weakening user protections? Are there other ways to maintain citizens’ rights than by banning the principle of automated decision-making? Does it make sense to regulate one kind of decision-making, but not others?

The outputs of the discussion will be fed back to the Minister for Digital and Culture as part of the Government’s formal consultation for the new National Data Strategy.
