EU Council of Ministers publishes updated version of the General Data Protection Regulation

The EU Council of Ministers has published a new version of the General Data Protection Regulation, dated 6 April 2016. PL&B understands that technical/linguistic work has clarified some of the unclear wording in the text that was adopted by a political agreement in December last year.

This new version has 173 recitals (introductory statements), 99 Articles in 260 pages in the English version, and is available in the 24 official languages. 

PL&B International Report, June 2016, will report on this topic in more detail.
