ICO Children’s Code

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) Children’s code (Age-appropriate design code) contains 15 standards that online services need to follow. This is intended to help organisations comply with their obligations for children’s data online under data protection law.

The ICO has published a series of  guidance and resources  to help a range of organisations and practitioners to apply the Children’s Code.
