The UK’s most accurate and reliable deceased suppression file
Using 3rd party Suppression services to remove deceased customers is essential to maintaining data accuracy and meeting the GDPR data compliance requirements.
Holding records of deceased customers could turn out to be a costly mistake. Out of date records could constitute a technical breach of the Regulation and incur penalties of 2% of global turnover or €10 million, whichever is greater.
The National Deceased Register (NDR) will help you to ensure your data is accurate and compliant. It is widely acknowledged to be the UK’s most accurate and reliable deceased suppression file and is utilised by the majority of the country’s leading data bureau and data processors to ensure their databases are maintained to the highest standards.

When approached by the Ark to take on the NDR we gave them fair warning that, where it comes to evaluating new data sources, the AA are not an easy organisation to do business with. Happily, for both parties, the NDR stood up to some pretty heavy scrutiny and has now been embedded into our business on what we anticipate will be a long term basis.Graeme McDermott
