GDPR and data management solutions

Staying gdpr compliant in 2022

Navigating the ever-changing legal landscape with a little help from your Lyreco experts.

At Lyreco, we specialise in delivering the best solutions for every workplace in the most sustainable way. We aim to provide you with everything you need, whether your workplace is the office, home, warehouse or call centre.

With the many other issues that the country has faced over the past few years, you may have missed the fact that the UK GDPR law has changed. However, staying on top of GDPR regulations is vital if you are to avoid facing hefty fines.

What has changed?

When the UK left the EU on January 1st 2021, the UK was no longer under EU’s GDPR jurisdiction and adopted its own UK General Data Protection Regulation which sits alongside the DPA 2018 (Data Protection Act).

The UK GDPR is legislation designed to protect the rights and freedoms of UK citizens and applies to the handling of personal data. Personal data is any data relating to a living individual who can be identified from that data. Read more about GDPR, including advice for businesses.
