New personal data protection bill

On Tuesday, the Ministry of Digital Affairs published a personal data protection bill. The scope of the bill is not final yet. It covers only this part of the regulations which until now has been prepared by the Ministry. Other provisions which the bill is to include are still worked on. The Ministry also stated that the part already published may still be changed. The published bill includes general provisions, procedure regarding infringements and control procedure, personal data protection, European administrative cooperation, administrative fines, civil liability and issues related to data protection inspectors.

The publication, even though partial, should be read as a very positive sign – comments Piotr Ćwiertniewski, attorney-at-law and partner at BSWW Legal & Tax. Adjustment of personal data processing to the requirements of the general EU regulation on personal data protection (regulation 2016/679) will be a complex and multidimensional process. Considering how little time is left to complete the adjustment, data administrators should as soon as possible get to know the provisions implementing regulation 2016/679 in the Polish legal system. For this reason each action getting us closer to knowing more about those regulations and making it possible to prepare comments to the bill as early as possible is welcome.
