GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is the most significant piece of privacy and data protection legislation in twenty years. It takes effect on 25th May 2018. It significantly increases the obligations and responsibilities for organisations and businesses in how they collect, use and protect personal data. At the centre of the new law is the requirement for organisations and businesses to be fully transparent about how they are using and safeguarding personal data, and to be able to demonstrate accountability for their data processing activities.
All freelance state-registered dietitians in private practice are required to comply with this new legislation in their businesses and implement changes accordingly, if necessary.
