In January 2012, the European Commission proposed a comprehensive reform of data protection rules in the EU.
On 4th of May 2016, the official texts of the Regulation and the Directive have been published in the EU Official Journal in all the official languages.
While the Regulation will enter into force on 24 May 24th 2016, it shall apply from May 25th 2018. The Directive enters into force on May 5th 2016 and EU Member States have to transpose it into their national law by May 6th 2018.
The objective of this new set of rules is to give citizens back control over of their personal data, and to simplify the regulatory environment for business.
The data protection reform is a key enabler of the Digital Single Market which the Commission has prioritised.
The reform will allow European citizens and businesses to fully benefit from the digital economy.
