Unfortunately, the legislation says that the Guardian "may" give advice and that the relevant care providers should "have regard" to the guidance given.

Also The Secretary of State may remove the Data Guardian from office if satisfied that he or she is unable, unwilling or unfit to perform the functions of the Data Guardian.

The Data Guardian does not appear to have any specific enforcement powers directly over the bodies concerned.
