For the UK, it was not just the GDPR that came into force on 25th May 2018, but also the new data protection legislation that replaced the old Data Protection Act 1998. Much of the new Data Protection Act 2018 writes the GDPR into UK law and so compliance with the GDPR is the largest step towards DPA18 compliance.
However, the UK DPA18 also contains requirements for areas outside of the GDPR scope (i.e. law enforcement and intelligence services processing), and allows for GDPR derogations and supplementing provisions to be written into UK law.
Our GDPR documents and toolkits have been written using both the GDPR and DPA18 and provide policies, templates, checklists and procedures that are compliant with both. For those looking for DPA18 policies, UK data protection checklists or a complete DPA18 Toolkit to aid compliance with the mandatory data protection requirements, we have 3 packs starting at just £95 (exc vat).
