General Data Protection Act has been introduced in order to standardize personal data regulations not only in the European Union but also across the European Economy Area. This act applies directly to the entire EEA region. Every member state also has a right to specify these regulations within their national legislation.
The Act of Personal Data Protection of 10 May 2018 is a Polish legal document that supports and specifies the GDPR regulation in Poland. It defines subjects who are obliged to designate a data protection officer, procedures to be implemented for data protection violation, criminal liability and administrative monetary penalties to be executed for violating the regulation. DAPR ensures compliance with both GDPR and Polish Act provisions.
