Regulations

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in the UK on 25 May 2018.  It, coupled with a new UK Data Protection Act (DPA 2018) replaced the existing data protection law.  The new law will also apply after Brexit.

As the new DPA 2018 is still undergoing Parliamentary scrutiny the detail below refers mainly to the GDPR because its provisions are set.  This page will be updated once the DPA 2018 comes into effect.

The EU GDPR is designed to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe.  It aims to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches.  It replaces the Data Protection Act (DPA) which dates back to the 1990s when organisations held less data on individuals.
