General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25th May 2018 bringing stronger, broader and more consistent legislation to the protection of personal data. As the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) is UK law, it would still apply alongside the GDPR, leading to possible inconsistency and confusion.

To confirm and strengthen UK data protection law and prepare for Brexit, the Government introduced the Data Protection Bill to the House of Lords on 13 September 2017, which will implement the GDPR and update UK data protection laws once passed. The Bill will also enable the UK to exercise derogations in the GDPR & introducing more specific provisions where applicable. Any updates that the Bill brings once passed will be added to our content (with free updated documents being available for existing GDPR purchasers).  

We have developed extensive GDPR documents to assist in the planning and document development stage. Our GDPR documents are suitable for all business types (not just Financial Services), however as any off-the-shelf provider should tell you – you cannot buy complete GDPR compliance, so customisation is required.

Our documents have been developed by reading, digesting and dissecting the GDPR legislation, recitals, Supervisory Authority guidelines and Article 29 Working Party opinions, but it is essential that organisations understand their obligations in ensuring the data protection requirements. You cannot buy complete GDPR compliance, but our documents will help with preparation and understanding.
