General data protection regulation (GDPR) in Jersey and Guernsey

The impact of the GDPR in the Channel Islands

The GDPR was approved by the EU in April 2016 and comes into effect from May 2018.

The GDPR increases the rights of EU citizens with regards their personal data. This will impact every organisation that holds or uses European personal data both inside and outside of Europe.

The Channel Islands have also committed to enact equivalent legislation in line with the GDPR to ensure that the Islands maintain their ‘adequacy’ status.

The GDPR creates technical and operational challenges but also presents a major opportunity to transform your approach to privacy and ensure your operations are fit for a digital economy.
