UK Data Protection Bill Another Change For Beleaguered Industry

The UK government has unveiled a new bill intended to bring the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) into national law, amid warnings it could create additional complexity for businesses.

As an EU regulation, the GDPR will automatically apply to all countries in the union once it comes into effect on May 25 next year, unlike directives which must be transposed into national law to take effect.

However, the UK government has taken the opportunity to introduce a new Data Protection Act to align the functions of the GDPR with the UK’s domestic system.
