UCPA Step 04: Portability Requests for UCPA

Processing a user’s right to data portability is identical to an access request. The key difference is that the data returned to the user should be in a machine-readable format that could be transferred to another vendor or business.

For example, in a typical access request, you can return this data to the user in any format that is easy to read and understand, such as a PDF or spreadsheet.

In the case of data portability, you must provide these records in a machine-readable format that other systems can process and display. Common examples of these formats include JSON, CSV, or XML, but there are many others to choose from.

Need help returning DSR packages in a JSON, CSV, or XML file for data portability requests? Ask how on the Fides Slack Community (opens in a new tab).
