About us

The National Association of Data Protection and Freedom of Information Officers is a professional body that represents individuals or organisations that deal with the Data Protection Act; the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations; the Freedom of Information Act; and and the Environmental Information Regulations.

The members consist of information governance practitioners from a number of disciplines, including managers, administrators and lawyers.

Our aims are to raise the standards in the field of information rights through support of multidisciplinary practice and collaborative information and the provision of a forum for the dissemination of knowledge.

We also act as a professional advisory body to other groups, including government agencies.

Members are entitled to attend, at no further cost, at least four one-day conferences a year, which are held in major cities throughout the UK.

We are a not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers and we keep our prices low to enable as many colleagues, particularly in the public and third sectors to remain involved.
