The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be directly applicable in the UK and create additional obligations to firms alongside the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA). It is important that firms understand their new obligations under GDPR, which will take effect on 25 May 2018. Although the UK is leaving the European Union, the government has confirmed that Brexit will not affect its implementation. 

GDPR will be implemented on 25 May 2018. Firms should begin to review their data protection policies as soon as possible ready for implementation
