The General Data Protection Regulation comes into force on 25th May 2018 and is designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe. The GDPR aims to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy. The principles of the GDPR are the principles for good data protection but what impact does this have on microchipping.
As a microchip implanter the way you process (collect, use, store and dispose of) personally identifiable information (PII) are impacted by the changing regulations. It is your responsibility when collecting PII data to check that organisations you share personal data with, including the microchip database, are also GDPR compliant. Failure to comply and be able to demonstrate compliance could result in fines of up to €20 million or 4% of annual turnover, whichever is greater.
