The Data Protection Act, the GDPR and the UK Data Protection Bill
Once upon a time we had the Data Protection Act…then we had the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)…..then we had Brexit….and now we have the UK Data Protection Bill!
If you are confused over the data protection changes coming into force in the EU and UK, we have produced a short table highlighting where UK law will differ from the EU when the GDPR comes into force on 25 May 2018, and also what to expect from the data protection legislation that will be in place when the UK exits the European Union in 2019.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25 May 2018. Under the GDPR, Member States are able to derogate from and make individual decisions relating to certain areas. Below is a table setting out the main derogations and decisions the UK is intending to take in relation to the GDPR, as set out in the UK Data Protection Bill.
