Keep a record of Customers Contact Details?

Are you recording customers contact details?

In a press release issued 10 September 2020, the Department for Health and Social Care has reminded affected businesses that they have a legal obligation to record the contact details of their customers, visitors and staff.

Affected concerns in England should note:

  • businesses and other public settings where people meet socially including hospitality, close contact and leisure venues must record contact details of customers, visitors and staff on their premises to tackle the spread of coronavirus
  • details must be stored for 21 days and shared with NHS Test and Trace, if requested
  • fixed penalties will apply to organisations that do not comply

Premises and venues across England like pubs, restaurants, hairdressers and cinemas must have a system in place by law to record contact details of their customers, visitors and staff in the latest move to break the chains of transmission of coronavirus.

These businesses and organisations had been advised to collect and share data, with many effectively doing so, but following the recent move to ban social gatherings of more than 6 people, the data collection programme is now formally mandated and has applied since 18 September.

Please note regional variations in these regulations may apply.
