GDPR Effective Date

GDPR come into effect for the whole of Europe on 25th Many 2018. While this may come as a shock to some, it has been well publicised for the past 2 years and the date is final for all countries and there is going to be no grace period.

This means that individuals will have the right to enforce their rights under the GDPR with effect from that date and the Data Protection Commissioner will have additonal powers, primarily in the form of administrative fines, to enforce the regulations.
