New Data Protection Laws Progress

Published On:Wednesday, May 16, 2018


The Data Protection Bill 2018 has received Royal Assent and the two Orders, the Data Protection (Implementation of GDPR) Order 2018 (SD2018/0143) and the Data Protection (Implementation of LED) Order 2018 (SD2018/0144), have subsequently been approved by Tynwald today.

The current Data Protection Act 2002 will, however, continue in force until the Implementing Regulations are passed.  These are scheduled to be brought to the June sitting of Tynwald.
