The DWP has asked FOIL to inform members that from 22 June a new form will be introduced for making a CRU Right of Access Request. The introduction to the form states:
“The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) recognises that sometimes people agree to a third party, such a solicitor or welfare rights organisation, requesting a copy of the personal information we hold on them. To protect privacy, we must be sure that someone provides signed consent to any requests for their personal information made by third parties. The following form satisfies DWP that someone agrees to either all or some of their information being released. Using this form will help us deal with requests as quickly as possible.”
