On 28th of January, on the International Data Protection Day, AEDH urges the Member States to finally accelerate their march towards the confirmation of new rights for the EU citizens. AEDH believes that the Member States demonstrated a singular flimsiness while considering the GDPR as a mere additional constraint which application should be postponed as long as possible instead of taking it as an opportunity to promote the defense of privacy as a fundamental right to be built.
All these concerns are held, because on 25th of May 2018 is the deadline for the implementation of the GDPR, General Data Protection Regulation, in all EU countries. Till March only Germany and Austria complied with the text. The European Association for the Defence of Human Rights (AEDH) is surprised that the Member States have not anticipated the implementation of a text of direct application while they had two years to do so.
