Data Protection Act 2018

The UK Data Protection Act has now been given Royal Assent on 23 May 2018

The long awaited (and feared) Act is now in force. The Data Protection Act 1998 is withdrawn.

The Act has applied a number of derogations, as allowed in the EU GDPR  Regulation. These are important as they apply to the United Kingdom and some of these derogations alter the way that Data Protection Law is applied.

The ICO (Information Commissioners Office) has produced a guide to the new Act and here is a link to that element:  https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/data-protection-act-2018/ Here is also a link to the actual Legislation. (It is rather lengthy):  https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2018/12/pdfs/ukpga_20180012_en.pdf

We will have to see what impact this has on UK businesses once the dust has settled.
