News Flash – New EU rules for personal data protection finally adopted

After 4 years of political discussions, the EU Regulation 2016/679 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data (the GDPR) was finally adopted on 27 April 2016.

The GDPR came into force on 24 May 2016 and replaces Directive 95/46/EC. A transitional period of 2 years is provided until the GDPR becomes fully enforceable in the Member States, which brings us to 25 May 2018.

The GDPR will be directly applicable in all Member States without the need for implementing national legislation.
