How Do I Add Related Items via a Register?

Related Items can be added either via Registers or via a Privacy Assessment.

(This article deals with adding a Related Item via a Register.  To find out how to add a Related Item via a Privacy Assessment, please refer to our articles relating to Privacy Assessments.)

Via Registers

First of all, navigate to Privacy>Registers>Select a register.

  • Click the edit button beside a record in the register, and click the Related Items tab. 
  • You will be presented with a list of related registers which may already have Related Items set up.  (See example below of a DPIA register record with Related Items to the Data Elements, Third Party and Business System registers.) 


  • To add a Related Item, click on the related register name.
  • Next, click, scroll or search for the relevant related record, and then click the Add Register Link button. 
  • Once added as a Related Item, you can then, if required, add a record relationship.  (The example below shows a Third Party being linked to a DPIA record and the relationship being set as 'Processor External'.)
