Data Protection Update: New Data Protection Law is approved by the States of Guernsey
This briefing note follows our previous update in October 2017 concerning the impact in Guernsey of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).
On 29 November 2017 the States of Guernsey resolved to approve the draft Data Protection (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law 2017 (the “DPL”). The DPL now requires Royal Assent. It is expected to come into force on or around 25 May 2018, at the same time that the GDPR comes into effect across the EU.
