GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation

These webpages will tell you all you need to know about how the General Data Protection Regulation will affect your work at UCL.

The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) will come into force on 25 May 2018. Together with the Data Protection Bill currently under consideration in Parliament, it will replace the Data Protection Act 1998 in the UK, imposing much stricter rules around how UCL uses personal data and far tougher penalties for non-compliance.
