The Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs is co-organising with the Legislative Dialogue Unit of the Directorate for National Parliaments an Interparliamentary Committee Meeting on the Implementation of the Data Protection package at the eve of the entry into force on Tuesday, 15 May 2018, from 9h00 to 12h30 and 14h00 to 17h30, at the European Parliament in Brussels.

With this one-day event, Members of the National Parliaments of the EU Member States will have a unique opportunity to exchange views and best practices with Members of the EP, the representatives of the EU institutions, bodies, law enforcement authorities, intergovernmental organizations, SMEs and the IT specialists on a topic which combines competences at all levels of governance in the EU.

The EU General Data Protection package is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years. The new proposals are designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens' data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy. The aim of the GDP package is to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data-driven world.
