What will the next Irish Data Protection Act say?

The General Data Protection Regulation is an EU Regulation, which means that it has direct effect inside (and indeed outside) the EU. Member States do not have to do anything further in order for the GDPR to apply on May 25, 2018. However, the GDPR allows EU Member States to adapt some of its provisions; other provisions such as the imposition of fines and other sanctions may require some statutory procedures in order to be fully effective. Therefore Ireland, like other EU Member States, will amend its national data protection laws to take account of the GDPR.
