Abstract

On the 27th April 2016, the REGULATION (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR) was adopted by the Member States of the EU with the plan of achieving harmonization and uniformity in the applicable data protection rules in Member States. This Regulation did introduce new provisions into the body of laws on data protection and this could be to some extent knotty owing to their relative novelty. This paper carries out an analysis of key provisions of the said Regulation with the aim of examining, as much as possible, the possible expectations under the said regulation.
