Italy integrates GDPR in national privacy legislation

The Italian Council of Ministers has on 8th August 2018 approved a decree which integrates GDPR into Italian Privacy law. The Decree will have to be published to the Italian Official Gazette to come into force.

The GDPR will overwrite part of the Italian Privacy Code (decreto legislativo n. 196/2003), it reformulates the duties and powers of the Italian DPA (Garante per la per il trattamento dei dati personali) and redefines the rules around administrative and criminal sanctions for breaches of the law.
