The Act Now GDPR Handbook
An all in one reference tool for those grappling with
the new Data Protection legislation
We all know that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) cannot be read in isolation.

In September 2017, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) published the Data Protection Bill. Amongst other things, it sets out how the UK Government intends to exercise its GDPR "derogations"; where Members states are allowed to make their own rules.

There are also a number of guidance documents from the Information Commissioner's Office as well as the Article 29 Working Party on different aspects of GDPR.

Wouldn't it be useful to have one version of the GDPR containing clear signposts to the relevant provisions of the Bill and official guidance under each Article/Recital?

Act Now is pleased to announce the launch of its GDPR Handbook. This is a B5 size colour document. It is designed for data protection practitioners who want a single printed resource on the GDPR. It contains the full text of the GDPR together with:

  • Corresponding GDPR Recitals under each Article;
  • Notes on the relevant provisions of Data Protection Bill;
  • Links to official guidance and useful blog posts; and
  • Relevant extracts of the Data Protection Bill.

A lot of the useful explanation of the provisions (Articles) is contained in the Recitals, which are at the front of the official text of the GDPR. Consequently, the reader has to constantly flick back and forth between the two. By placing the corresponding Recitals under each Article, the Act Now GDPR Handbook allows a more natural readying of the GDPR.

Please note that this document does not contain the full text of the Data Protection Bill; only the relevant extracts (in Appendix 2) which have a direct impact on GDPR namely Part 1 and 2 of the Bill, together with relevant Schedules.
