ICO registration number

When applying for accessing to the data, I am asked for the ICO registration number?
What is the ICO number? Where can I obtain this number?
Thank you

This is the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) registration number
Legally data controllers are required to register with the ICO, and the organisation will receive an ICO registration number as part of this process.

Hi Minghun,

As David mentioned the ICO provides a registration number for organisations who are data controllers. You can lookup your organisation’s registration number here -

Hi Susheel & David,
I can now find my University’s registration number. Many thanks for your kind response.
