DP Bill Set to be Passed by 23rd July 2024 – Your Front Page For Information Governance News

The Data Protection and Digital Information Bill, which modifies the UK GDPR, the Data Protection Act 2018, and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 (“PECR”), is set to enter the Report stage in the House of Lords on June 10th (scheduled for two days). While amendments are still possible, none have been proposed thus far.

The Bill as amended by the Grand Committee can be accessed here. The Keeling Schedules, which detail changes to the UK GDPR, may also provide valuable insights, although they were released in March before the Grand Committee stage.

The Bill is still pending the Third Reading stage in the House of Lords, but it appears highly likely that it will receive Royal Assent before the Parliamentary Summer Recess commences on July 23rd, 2024. Some provisions will take effect immediately upon passing, while others may require regulations to enforce them, potentially including a transition period.

Next week, Robert Bateman will be hosting our workshop: Data Protection and Digital Information Bill: Preparing for GDPR and PECR Reforms.
