Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), effective May 25th, 2018, has dramatically changed the landscape for any business which offers goods or services to European Union-based customers. The extra-territorial reach of GDPR means that not only organizations headquartered in the European Union need to comply with this legislation, but businesses across the globe which are headquartered outside of the European Union must also take heed.
Lex Mundi has developed several resources to assist with GDPR compliance.
Guide to GDPR EU Regulations Within the EU - provides an overview of the new GDPR legislation as it appears within the European Union jurisdictions affected directly.
- Guide to GDPR EU Regulation Outside of the EU – explains the impact of GDPR legislation on organizations headquartered outside of the European Union but have operations or interests in the European Union.
Global Data Privacy Guide - provides an overview of the legislation in each jurisdiction along with the key data protection provisions. The innovative format allows users to compare data privacy provisions from multiple jurisdictions in a side-by-side customizable report and provides contacts to expert Lex Mundi member firm lawyers based in each market.
