The General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679), known as the GDPR, is a new regulation which replaces the Data Protection Regulation (Directive 95/46/EC).
The GDPR aims to harmonise data protection legislation across EU member states, enhancing privacy rights for individuals and providing a strict framework within which commercial organisations can legally operate.
Even though the UK has expressed its intention to leave the EU in March 2019, the GDPR will be applicable in the UK from 25th May 2018. The Government intends for the GDPR to continue in UK law post Brexit and has also introduced a Data Protection Bill to replace the current Data Protection Act in due course.
These changes will only apply once the GDPR becomes law on 25th May 2018.
