On 6 April 2016, the European Union approved an important reform on the regulatory framework relating to the protection of personal data by adopting the “General Data Protection Regulation” (GDPR or Regulation), directly applicable to its Member States. The Regulation replaces the 95/46/CE Directive (“Directive on data protection”) and its application becomes compulsory from the 25th may 2018, two years after its coming into force.

The new Regulation strengthens the protection of the right to personal data protection (Data Protection), in line with the recognition of personal data protection as a fundamental right of the EU.
The Regulation also represents a necessary and urgent response to the challenges posed by technological developments that allow the collection and processing of large quantities of personal data in real time, allowing the development of automated decisions that go beyond human intervention.
The Regulation meets the need to protect the private sphere, which is increasingly felt by European citizens.
