The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new EU regulation that will come into force on 25 May 2018. It will strengthen the current rules under the Data Protection Act (1998) by introducing new obligations for organisations and rights for individuals.
These changes will impact how recruiters and recruitment businesses process candidate and client data. It is therefore essential that recruiters familiarise themselves with these changes and begin preparing.
We are in touch with the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) and are working with our sister federations in Europe to get additional information for our members and contribute to guidance materials.
Over the next 12 months, we will be running a series of workshops around the UK to ensure that our members are ready for these changes. Learn more about our GDPR workshops and book your place now.
We will also continue to add information to our legal guide.
