What is GDPR?

The GDPR stands for the General Data Protection Regulation. It was issued by the EU and entered into force in 2018. The purpose of the GDPR is to strengthen the protection of EU citizens' personal data. This means, among other things, that the previous EU directive, which was implemented in Swedish law through PUL, ceased to apply and thus also PUL. Since an EU regulation is directly applicable in all EU countries it does not need to be implemented through national legislation.
