General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
Information for Big Local areas
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect on 25 May 2018. All organisations processing personal data have to comply with the GDPR by this date. Each individual organisation is responsible for the data under its control. Local Trust is currently reviewing its data protection policies and procedures to ensure they meet the GDPR requirements and is advising its partners to do the same. This document describes the main principles of the GDPR and how it affects your Big Local partnership and relationships with Local Trust, your locally trusted organisation and your community.
