​BIIDPA stands for British, Irish and Islands’ Data Protection Authorities of the UK, Ireland, Cyprus, Jersey, Isle of Man, Malta, Gibraltar and Bermuda.  A meeting is held on an annual basis where the organisation is volunteered by one of the respective authorities.  

Discussions at these meetings are informal in nature and provide the right platform for the exchange of useful information to ensure a consistent approach to the treatment of issues which are of common interest.  

The Commissioner actively participates in this meeting which, in 2016, will be hosted by this Office.
