General Data Protection Regulation

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is due to come into force in the UK on 25 May 2018. The aim of the GDPR, which replaces the current Data Protection Directive, is to establish a modern and harmonised data protection framework across the EU.

The Queen's Speech, delivered on 21 June 2017, set out the Government's proposal for a Data Protection Bill for protecting personal data. The GDPR will be implemented under the Bill. The Data Protection Act 1998, which implements the Data Protection Directive and currently regulates the handling of personal data, will be repealed.

We round up our resources that will help employers prepare for the introduction of the new data protection regime.
