On November 23, 2018, the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) adopted new draft guidelines intended to provide clarity with respect to the territorial scope of the Europe Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The highly-anticipated GDPR guidelines provide needed clarification on several key issues, including how the GDPR will be applied to business entities located in different parts of the world, and which businesses will need to appoint a representative in the European Union (EU) to act as a liaison with local supervisory authorities.
Given the severity of the penalties for violations of the GDPR, all US and EU-businesses should closely follow the newly-released guidelines in order to ensure that they are in full compliance with the GDPR.
