Compilation of European GDPR Guidances

As of July 24, 2018
The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect on May 25, 2018. Because of its likely effect on US federally funded human subjects research conducted in Europe, the Office for Human Research Protections has compiled a listing of guidances pertaining to the GDPR. These documents are classified as:
  • General Guidance 
  • Research
  • Legal Basis
  • Consent
  • International Data Transfer
Country-level interpretations and procedures are likely to evolve over time, and data protection authorities may release new guidances in the future.
