On 24 May 2016, the European GDPR Regulation (General Data Protection Regulation) came into force. This regulation governs the processing of personal data and includes a number of amendments to the current Belgian Privacy Law. The impact of these changes on your business should not be underestimated. A transitional period of 2 years has been provided. This means you have until 25 May 2018 to ensure your company is ready to fulfil the new obligations.
