UK Data Protection Update - July 2015

By Ruth Boardman, Ariane Mole


We attach the summer data protection bulletin. Two highlights are:

  1. The Council of Ministers approving its general approach to the General Data Protection Regulation and trilogue commencing to allow the Regulation to be finalised; and
  2. For UK readers, the decision in R (Davis, Watson and others), concluding that the Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Act ('DRIPA') is incompatible with EU law.
