Maritime GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation Implementation


Maritime GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation Implementation

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will apply from 25 May 2018, when it supersedes all EU member states’ current national data protection laws. Significant and wide-reaching in scope, the Regulation brings a 21st-century approach to data protection. It expands the rights of individuals to control how their personal information is collected and processed, and places a range of obligations on organisations to be more accountable for data protection.Maritime GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation Implementation!

Deadline for compliance: 25 May 2018


Under GDPR organizations in breach of GDPR can be fined up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 Million (whichever is greater). This is the maximum fine that can be imposed for the most serious infringements e.g.not having sufficient customer consent to process data or violating the core of Privacy by Design concepts. There is a tiered approach to fines e.g. a company can be fined 2% for not having their records in order (article 28), not notifying the supervising authority and data subject about a breach or not conducting impact assessment. It is important to note that these rules apply to both controllers and processors — meaning ‘clouds’ will not be exempt from GDPR enforcement.

Who is impacted?

The GDPR applies to controllers and processors that are handling the personal data of European individuals. Perhaps one of the most important things to note is that this new regulation applies to ALL organisations collecting and processing personal data of individuals residing in the EU, regardless of the company’s physical location.
