Access To Audit Data

NOCA Information Governance Policy

NOCA’s approach to information governance is described in NOCA’s Information Governance Policy, which can be viewed here.

  • NOCA abides by the principle of sharing data appropriately. In addition to disseminating insights from the data under NOCA governance, NOCA endeavours to provide access to non-personal high-value datasets through our Data Access Policy and Ireland’s Open Data portal at

  • NOCA will not disclose information that could identify an individual except in relation to implant registers; then only to support an implant recall, or directly to an individual if a data subject access request is received.

  • All data access requests are logged and requestor details are stored

  • All data access requests are examined and assessed to determine if NOCA can respond

  • All data access requests are considered under the legal basis for the collection of that data

  • Depending on the type of data requested, before providing data NOCA may require the requestor to demonstrate that they have appropriate governance in place to manage that data.
