The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU regulation that establishes a new framework for handling and protecting the personal data of EU citizens. ( This will still apply after Brexit).
It introduces new obligations and liabilities for all organisations – including Parish Councils, that handle personal data and new rights for individuals in respect of their personal data. The new regulations will come into force on 25 May 2018. For Croxdale and Hett Parish Council itself, as a corporate body, it is the formal Data Controller and as such must meet its obligations.
