GDPR advice for independent garages

A self-help Garage Guide to GDPR is being launched to help independents comply with new data regulations.

The General Data Protection Regulation comes in next May and puts stricter controls on how and why dealers can gather, store and process personal data compliantly.

Now the Independent Garage Association (IGA) has announced it will publish a handbook, free to its members, and available to all independent garages through the RMI’s certification business.

This tailored guide will be reinforced with consultation support from the IGA’s team of specialist auditors, including a Quality Assurance certificate when the appropriate standard is met.

Stuart James, IGA director said: “There is currently a lot of publicity surrounding GDPR, leading to a degree of apprehension and uncertainty. We want to take this concern away and provide a bespoke solution specifically for small independent garages.

“Upon demonstrating compliance with the new GDPR regulation, we will be offering ongoing support to ensure consistent adherence.”

The services are expected to be available at the end of the year.

  • Dealers can learn more about GDPR compliance for FREE from experts in the field at the Automotive Management Live event at Birmingham NEC on November 9. Simply click here to visit the Automotive Management Live website and register.
