General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

After several years of extensive negotiation, the European Union (EU) adopted the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)1 on 27 April 2016. The GDPR is intended to harmonize the data protection framework across Europe, which will drastically change the way businesses manage digital information. Unlike EU directives, the GDPR does not require national governments to transpose it into their national laws. It will be directly binding on all EU member states and applicable as of 25 May 2018.

The EU has also introduced a new directive on the Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) process, Directive 2016/680, that member states will need to transpose into their national laws by 6 May 2018. Together, these new laws create significant new requirements for businesses in the EU and businesses that process the personal data of EU residents. They also impose significant fines on businesses that fail to comply.
