What is ‘GDPR’?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is a law that regulates the way organisations handle personal data.

After Brexit, there are now 2 GDPR regulations: The EU GDPR (and the UK GDPR).


The EU GDPR replaces the EU Data Protection Directive 1995, and all other European member state laws that are based on it. It applies to all organisations processing or controlling the processing of personal data from EU residents, regardless of where they are located.


The UK’s post-Brexit version of the EU GDPR is the UK GDPR. It is substantially similar to the EU regulation and places similar obligations on data controllers and processors.
