Crucial vote delayed until October 2013

The new European Data Protection Regulation has been on the agenda since it was first proposed by Vice-President Vivian Reding January 2012 – but despite set-backs in pushing forward with new harmonised rules, new legislation will be with us in the next year or so setting out a new framework for how we can process data.

Unhelpfully there is a great deal of scaremongering about the new Regulation from pressure groups keen to retain and exploit loop holes and confusion with the existing legislation for their own benefits which makes it difficult to get a clear picture of what the new rules will mean in practice.

Science Business published a useful article last week which is well worth reading for an objective update of the current situation.
