GDPR for Recruiters

What is the Regulation?

The European Parliament has introduced a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by way of reform of EU Data Protection Law. The GDPR replaces the current Data Protection Directive, which was implemented into UK Law through the Data Protection Act 1998.

As the GDPR is a Regulation, rather than a Directive, it will be immediately binding on all EU member states immediately once in force.

When does GDPR become law?

Consultation began in 2009 in recognition of the new challenges for personal data protection, particularly in light of new technologies and globalisation.

The implementation date for GDPR is 25th May 2018.
