Effective Date: 16 July 2018


«The purpose of the EU’s Privacy Regulation is to ensure good protection of personal data while allowing such information to be freely exchanged within the EEA.

The Regulation continues many of the principles of the current Personal Data Protection Directive, but introduces a number of new rules. These include expanded duties for businesses, such as informing about how the business processes personal information, investigating privacy implications for actions that pose a high risk of privacy and to notify about security breaches.

The privacy regulation makes it necessary to change Norwegian law and regulations. The Government presented a proposal with a new Personal Information Act and a request for Parliament’s prior consent to incorporate the regulation into the EEA Agreement on March 23, 2018. The Storting adopted the new Personal Information Act on May 28, 2018, and Act No. 15 of June 2011 on the Processing of Personal Information ( Personal Data Act ) was sanctioned by the Cabinet of Ministers on 15 June 2018. The plan will come into force in mid-July 2018.» – Lovdata
