The UK's exit from the European Union has resulted in changes to the principal UK Data Protection legislation namely the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016 (EU GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018). The revision of the GDPR, is now known as the 'UK GDPR'.
The UK GDPR Handbook sets out the full text of the UK GDPR laid out in a clear and easy to read format. It cross references the EU GDPR recitals, which also now form part of the UK GDPR, allowing for a more logical reading.
The handbook uses a unique colour coding system that allows users to easily identify amendments, insertions and deletions from the EU GDPR.
Relevant provisions of the amended DPA 2018 have been included where they supplement the UK GDPR. To assist users in interpreting the legislation, guidance from the Information Commissioner's Office, Article 29 Working Party and the European Data Protection Board is also signposted.
