The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
AT A GLANCE
When is it coming?
The GDPR was adopted on 27 April 2016 and it will become law on 25 May 2018, following a transition period. This means companies and organisations around the world have less than two years to get ready for the changes that affect how personal data is transferred to and from, as well as within, the EU.
Who does it affect?
Put simply, it affects any organisation that does business with an EU organisation or individual. Non-EU organisations that collect and process the personal data of European citizens will also be subject to compliance with the new law and will need to apply for a certification that their processes meet EU data privacy standards. No matter where you are based in the world, if you want to do business within the EU, you will need to comply with the GDPR.
What about Brexit?
The process for exiting the EU will take longer than two years to complete, so the UK will still be a part of the EU when GDPR becomes law. After that, the position for the UK is less clear and depends on the will of the government. However, if UK businesses want to do business in the EU, they will need to comply with the GDPR. The regulation is universally applicable. For EU countries, post-Brexit UK organisations will be affected by the GDPR just like any other non-EU entities.Contact Us
