The DSGA Framework for sharing data builds upon the Data Sharing and Governance Act 2019 by setting out a common set of practices for all public bodies to follow when they wish to use the Act as their legal basis for sharing data. Under the Framework, Data Sharing Agreements between public bodies for the purpose of sharing personal data will be made available for public consultation for a period of 28 days. A full list of these consultations is available at https://www.gov.ie/consultations/DSA.
