We reported at the end of last year that the GDPR would be in force by mid-March and so you may be wondering what is happening with its progress. The draft regulation has been the subject of further discussions within the European Council during the last couple of months, but on Friday the Council finally published its opinion on the text. This opinion will be sent to the European Parliament and it is expected that they will put the new regulation into place next week. We will keep you updated!
