The Data Protection Bill was introduced into Parliament on 13th September. Diana Kloss’s latest blog looks at the new Bill and EU data protection regulations due to take effect next May.

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will automatically become part of UK law on 25th May 2018, and will be supplemented by the Data Protection Bill now before Parliament.

For the first time in data protection legislation, the GDPR explicitly mentions occupational medicine. Diana Kloss’s first blog on the GDPR and Bill considers the new rules particularly as regards the requirement to give consent for reports to management.
