    I know that there's been a lot posted about this already but I wanted to ask if anyone knew if the WTS was in breach of the information commissioner's office (UK) directive or am I misunderstanding something.

    The IOC give a list of requirements with regards to charities and in part it says

    that consent is not a precondition for the service provided.

    The WTS in their instructions to the elders say that not giving consent means

    that the congregation will not be able to evaluate the person's suitability for certain activities; and it also excludes them from being recorded in congregation meetings.

    Does this contradict the IOC or not?

    It's a fair question but you're asking the wrong people. Why not send an enquiry to the ICO?

    More specifically, concerns can be reported here:

    Yes good catch, send it to the authorities along with some proof like a scan of a cobe letter

    see John Cedars latest video which discusses this. As there are ‘consequences’ if witnesses do not give consent it is coercion. John Cedars spoke to the IOC. You should definitely voice your concerns too.
