Since 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”) is directly applicable to all organizations active on the European Union territory.

The new rules impose stricter accountability obligations on private and public actors, while reducing or even eliminating formal reporting obligations (prior notifications and authorizations). Companies, associations and public bodies will be required to constantly ensure that the rules set out in the Regulation are followed and must be able to document their compliance with these rules at all times

A seven-step guide, as well as the CNPD’s « GDPR compliance support tool » of the CNPD can help you in this accountability process.
