Institute of Fundraising raises questions in its ‘first take’ on Regulator’s Code proposals

The Institute of Fundraising has given its ‘first take’ on the Fundraising Regulator’s Code consultation, highlighting a number of areas as requiring clarification as well as those it expects to be welcomed by charities.
In the piece on the Institute of Fundraising’s site, Head of Policy & Research Daniel Fluskey identifies these areas as requiring clarification:

Changes expected to be broadly welcomed by fundraisers include the introduction of new requirements in the Code to ensure that everyone is clear on what their responsibilities will be from 25th May 2018, changing and renaming sections of the Code to give one section on the legal aspects of ‘if/how’ charities can communicate with donors, and one section on the content of those communications, and the inclusion of both ‘consent’ and ‘legitimate interest’ as valid grounds for processing personal data for fundraising purposes, and specifically for direct marketing.
The consultation is open for feedback until 8 December, and the IoF is also inviting comments from members on po****@in**********************.uk.
