Approved April 2016, the GDPR will replace all data protection legislation in EU member states, including the UK’s Data Protection Act. GDPR is set to come into effect in 2018.
The main aim of the new regulation is to harmonise data protection laws across the EU. As a “regulation”, GDPR is directly applied to all EU Member States without the need for national legislation to be implemented.
The General Data Protection Regulation differs from the Data Protection Directive by expanding its reach, introducing new concepts and applying new obligations and accountability to data controllers and processors. Also standardising the way data regulations are audited and enforced country to country.
