Reform of the GDPR and EU changes
The final text of the EU GDPR is finally available.
Find out what most EU businesses have already adopted and how the UK adoption of the GDPR and EU changes affect your business.
The final version of the EU GDPR was confirmed and approved by the European Parliament in April 2016. This regulation supersedes the previous Data Protection Directive and introduces a new order to the way businesses will deal with individual citizens data. Twenty days after the date of publication in the Official Journal of the European Union, the GDPR came into force. Exactly two years after the date of entry, the Regulation will apply (25th May 2018).
The publication of the EU GDPR is just the start. Now the implementation phase begins. UK and EU businesses must make sure that their organisations comply with the new set of rules by the time the GDPR deadline comes into effect. Below is a brief overview of the EU changes you can expect.
