General Data Protection Requirements (GDPR) 14/05/2018

Data protection law in the UK will change on 25 May 2018, with the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  This is the biggest change to data protection legislation since the Data Protection Act (DPA) in the late 1990s, and it will affect everyone in the optical sector.

Guidance from the Optical Confederation aims to help the sector – including optical practices, manufacturers/suppliers/distributors, and employees – understand what is changing and what you need to do. You can view this guidance by clicking here.
