Luxembourg: Draft Law to Implement GDPR Submitted to Parliament

On September 12, 2017, the minister of communication and media submitted a draft law on the creation of the national commission for the protection of personal data and the implementation of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, with the aim of implementing and complementing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), to the Luxembourgish Chamber of Deputies.

As the GDPR is a regulation, it is directly applicable in all EU member states as of May 25, 2017. However, a margin of manoeuvrability is available for member states concerning certain provisions. Luxembourg decided to use this margin of manoeuvrability and published this draft law, which is planning to repeal the current Law of August 2, 2002 on the protection of people regarding the processing of personal data.
