Processing health data in France after the GDPR

Three months after the entry into effect of the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (‘GDPR’), companies and public bodies should be starting to consider additional, national requirements to comply with, as more and more EU Member States are finalising amendments to their domestic data protection laws.

Merav Griguer, Partner at Bird & Bird, analyses such provisions under France’s new Act No.78-17 of 6 January 1978 on Data Processing, Data Files and Individual Liberties (as amended to implement the GDPR) (‘the Act’) as well as additional national legislation.
