The Act Now GDPR Handbook
A complete reference tool to assist implementation of GDPR including references to the relevant provisions of the DPA 2018

The UK is no longer a member of the European Union. How will the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) change as a result?

The much-publicised Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018) came into force on 25th May 2018 alongside the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Part 1 and 2 of the Act supplement the GDPR by explaining certain terms and enacting "derogations"; where Member States are allowed to make their own rules e.g. about exemptions and children's consent. These parts have to be read alongside the GDPR for both laws to make sense.

Consequently, the reader has to constantly flick back and forth between the two. By placing the corresponding Recitals under each Article, the handbook allows a more natural reading of the GDPR.

The GDPR handbook is designed for data protection practitioners and legal advisers who require a single printed resource cross-referencing the GDPR with the supplementary provisions set out in the DPA 2018. It contains the full text of the final version of GDPR (as recently corrected by the European Commission) but laid out in a more logical and easy to read manner.

Under each Article of GDPR we have included:

  • The corresponding GDPR Recitals in blue
  • Signposts to relevant supplementary provisions of the DPA 2018
  • Links to any official guidance issued by the Information Commissioner's Office
  • Links to any official guidance issued by the EU Article 29 Working Party
  • Links to any relevant Act Now blog posts
  • A lot of the useful explanation of the provisions (Articles) is contained in the Recitals, which are at the front of the official text of the GDPR.
