Forward plans

CoPSO is currently concentrating its activity on preparing its members for political change.

Following the General Election, not only will the political landscape have changed, so too will be the regulatory, legislative and commercial environment. In these circumstances it will become ever more important for there to be clear and high professional standards to guide the sector through turbulent times and inform the political debate.

At a commercial level, the need to continue addressing outstanding concerns about access, charging and quality of data will be paramount.

Accordingly, CoPSO is:  

  • working with industry stakeholders and taking a more pro-active role with the HBSG, OPDA and DPMSG
  • creating a new strategy, engaging with members and setting out a revised mission and objectives for the future
  • continuing to work constructively with local authority representatives
  • developing and promoting new industry standards for data providers
  • strengthening the Search Code to promote best practice and supporting targeted enforcement activity to root out bad
