Right behind the GDPR, there’s the ePrivacy Regulation
How are companies supposed to comply with both if the ePrivacy Regulation isn’t finished?
If your company is complying with the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), what about the ePrivacy Regulation?
While GDPR is finalized and scheduled for implementation on May 25, the accompanying ePrivacy Regulation is still in the approval process, and its language could change.
An “optimistic” forecast, Future of Privacy Forum Policy Counsel Gabriela Zanfir-Fortuna told me, is that the ePrivacy Regulation will be finally approved by the end of 2018, although the implementation date remains to be seen.
The two are meant to go together, she said, and there are ongoing good faith efforts to ensure they will match.
