Act Now Training is pleased to announce the launch of the new UK GDPR Handbook.
The handbook is designed for data protection practitioners and legal advisers who require a complete guide to the UK Data Protection regime post Brexit.
The UK’s exit from the European Union has resulted in changes to the principal UK Data Protection legislation namely the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016 (EU GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018). The revision of the GDPR, pursuant to the Data Protection, Privacy and Electronic Communications (Amendments etc) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, is now known as the ‘UK GDPR’.
The UK GDPR Handbook sets out the full text of the UK GDPR laid out in a clear and easy to read format including tabs for ease of navigation. Tabs have been the most requested feature from user feedback of our popular EU GDPR Handbook.
The Handbook cross references the EU GDPR recitals, which also now form part of the UK GDPR, allowing for a more logical reading. Amendments, insertions and deletions (made by the 2019 regulations and shown in the Keeling Schedule) have been clearly indicated, using a colour coding system, to allow users to easily identify what has been changed. Relevant provisions of the amended DPA 2018 have been included where they contribute to the further understanding of the UK GDPR. Guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office, Article 29 Working Party and the European Data Protection Board is also signposted to assist users in interpreting the legislation.
Act Now has sold over 3000 copies of the EU GDPR Handbook. This new publication will be a valuable addition to data protection practitioners’ libraries. Ibrahim Hasan, the editor of the UK GDPR Handbook, said:
“I am really pleased with the publication of the UK GDPR handbook. My team and I have tried to produce a clear and easy to follow publication which will help practitioners navigate their way around this complex legislation.”
