CCTV Signage Requirements

Old CCTV Warning Signs - CCTV - GDPR compliance and signage

GDPR: Is your CCTV signage compliant?

Most of the video surveillance signs currently in use can no longer be considered as compliant; with the introduction of the Guidelines 3/2019 (adopted definitively on January 29, 2020), the old signs are no longer sufficient to transmit to data subjects that information which, although still considered “minimum”, is expected by the EDPB (European Data Protection Board).

The new signs need much more detailed information.
Below, point by point, we analyze the sections that compose our sign.

The new template, point by point.


This section, integrated with the Smart Glance pictograms, responds to the need to inform, at a glance, of the presence of a video surveillance system in the premises.


We identify the Data Controller and provide the contact details, including the DPO ones (if any). The headline tells us if the treatment consists only in real time monitoring or in the recording/storage of the images.


Information on the greatest impacts of the processing. This can include for example the legitimate interests pursued by the controller (or by a third party). The sign should contain any information that could surprise the data subject (WP260, par. 38). That could for example be transmissions to third parties, particularly if they are located outside the EU, and the storage period.


We inform the data subject of the existence of his rights and we refer to the more detailed second layer of information.


How to find the more detailed second layer of information?

Data subject can be invited to view it at the reception or at the waiting room (for example).
It is best if the first layer information refers to a digital source (e.g. QR-code or a website address) of the second layer.

Smart Glance ©

Adopted by Public and Private Institutions.

After GDPR entered into force, we created a system of pictograms devoted to bringing the Principle of Transparency of the European Regulation to the highest levels (principle that provides that information intended for the public is easily accessible and easy to understand) and to reward immediacy.
Smart Glance makes it clear at first glance the nature of video surveillance (if in real time, recorded or connected to the police) and the duration of any data retention.

In a short time, the system was adopted by numerous public and private institutions.
