On 1 February 2017, the German federal cabinet adopted a draft data protection bill. (“new BDSG”) to replace the existing Federal Data Protection Act of 2003. The new BDSG is intended to adapt the current German data protection law to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). The planned implementation statute aims to supplement and further define the EU General Data Protection Regulation.
The new BDSG includes specific requirements that deviate from the GDPR in some respects, including with respect to the appointment of a Data Protection Officer and the processing of employee personal data.
