RGA issues industry GDPR guidance

Industry trade body, the Remote Gambling Association (RGA) has published its guidance for mandatory General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) policies which are set to be implemented on 25 May 2018.

The RGA seeks to help industry stakeholders, navigate the complexities of EU-wide GDPR policies, which will implement a single regulatory framework on individual consumer digital data protections, the privacy of individuals and corporate data gathering consent.

Enforced this Month by the EU across its member states, GDPR will pose an operational challenge for all European digital enterprises, who will be forced to adhere to a stricter code on user data, implementing new provisions for processing data of EU consumers.

“The consistent and effective implementation of the GDPR poses a number of challenges for all industries and organisations, not least because of the lack of precedent to follow; and the fact that clear regulatory guidance on every aspect of it is not yet available.” The RGA details on its release.

“The aim of this guidance is to assist the remote gambling sector through this phase.  It will be reviewed and updated as and when greater clarity or better practice emerges.”
