Hi All,

 

In 2014 - there was a clarification from the Information Commissioners Office - on whether the domestic customers were allowed to record calls with utility companies. The article states that the ICO - said this was permissible:

 

http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/saving/article-2683569/How-watertight-records-calls-online-chats-case-s-dispute-later.html

 

Now that we are in 2018 - and with all the new legislation that is being passed:

 

Can we get a crystal clear update about what we are allowed / not allowed to do?

 

This should cover - if/how/when we can use our copy in the pursuit of settling a dispute.

 

I think exploring this topic will help many of my fellow community members - as it is one of the very few ways consumers can demonstrate their honesty.

 

My sincere thanks to any, willing to help map this out.

How could we get a fresh update / clarification on this?

 

I'm certain that it would help many of us - to put our minds at rest.

If you need to use it in a dispute with a regulator or adjudicator of some sort - what are the rules governing the use of such recordings.

 

If there was need for the Journalist to reach out to the ICO for the purpose of the article I linked to above - there must've been a reason for doing so. Clearly there was the potential for confusion or a need for clarification.

 

I guess I'm trying to establish if there have been any novel changes to the rules/regs/law in the four years since - regarding recording & using?

 

If unsure - what would be the best vector to find out?

You simply inform the regulator/adjudicator you have a record of the phone call, and would they like a copy of it along with a transcript?

AFAIK none, nothing has changed, just that recording equipment has now become accessible to consumers so we're all on a level playing field.

Depending on the question, the ICO? Recording calls is perfectly legal as it is for our own purpose, only if there were an issue/dispute then the call recording can be used,


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

if you wish you are quite within your legal right to send them a copy

what they do with it is their problem

they become the data controller under the DPA and ofcourse will have a data control officer/policy
