On May 12, 2017, the Irish Tánaiste and minister for justice and equality, and the minister of state for data protection, have published the General Scheme of the Data Protection Bill 2017.
The text aims to give effect to the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation 2016/679 or GDPR) in Ireland, and transpose Directive 2016/680 (the Law Enforcement Directive) into national law.
The text also aims to replace the data protection commissioner with a data protection commission.
