The way in which the GDC processes personal data is governed by data protection law, which includes the General
Data Protection Regulation 2016 (“GDPR”) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (“DPA 2018”).
In order to investigate the criminal offences created by the Dentists Act 1984, the GDC will obtain personal
data from individuals who complain to the GDC about illegal practice and about the subjects of those investigations.
The basis on which the GDC processes personal data in connection with illegal practice is that the processing is
necessary for the exercise of the GDC’s statutory functions in relation to illegal practice. Where the GDC processes
special category personal data or criminal conviction data in connection with illegal practice investigations, it
does so on the basis that the processing is necessary for the exercise of the GDC’s statutory functions in relation
to illegal practice and that the processing is also in the substantial public interest.
Information about how the GDC will use and share the information you give us, the various rights you have in
connection with any personal data about you that is held by the GDC, and how long we will keep your information
for can be found in the privacy notice on our website at www.gdc-uk.org/privacy.
