Until then the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC remains applicable in the EEA Agreement thus ensuring that data can continue to flow freely between the EEA EFTA States and the EU Member States.
For more information about how EU acts become EEA acts, please see a note by Subcommittee V on ‘How EU acts become EEA acts and the need for adaptations’.
In addition to the adoption of a JCD incorporating the GDPR into the EEA Agreement, the national parliaments of the EEA EFTA States need to amend national legislation in accordance with the rules of the GDPR.
Once parliamentary approval has been given by all three national Parliaments (fulfilment of constitutional requirements) and the JCD has been incorporated into the EEA Agreement, the GDPR becomes applicable throughout the EEA.
