A spokesperson from the DPA told DataGuidance that the legislation now requires updating, as "the majority of the provisions do not meet international standards".
The DPA also stated that the overall aim of the meeting is to enable them to better fulfil their mission and to identify any weaknesses and gaps that exist in the current law.
