EDPB publishes draft Guidelines on Territorial Scope of the GDPR
On 23 November 2018, the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) published the eagerly awaited draft Guidelines on the territorial scope of the GDPR. The 23-page Guidelines, which are open to public consultation until 18 January 2019, aim to help EU and non-EU established controllers and processors determine whether their processing operations fall within the scope of the GDPR, and ensure a consistent approach to the application of the GDPR. This note considers some of the EDPB’s key recommendations and examples of when the GDPR does or does not apply.
