22. When we record and store fingerprint biometrics (all 10 fingerprints for each person), we store a complete set in the NIR and a subset of these will be recorded on the card or passport, in line with ICAO recommendations. Again, this will be important for travel, given the international move to adopt fingerprints in travel documents.

So how does this square with the 3rd Principle of data protection, laid down in the Data Protection Act 1998 Schedule 1 ?

3. Personal data shall be adequate, relevant and not excessive in relation to the purpose or purposes for which they are processed.


The International Civil Aviation Organisation does not require the whole world to have all 10 fingerprints taken, only 1 ! Even that is currently a "future option", as the chosen biometric for the new style passports is just a Digitised Facial Photograph.
