Abstract:The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the main EU data protection law, has recently replaced the pre-existing Data Protection Directive and all national data protection legislation that implemented that Directive. In the media, the suggestion aroused that this transition in data protection legislation would have large implications for data processing organizations. In this study, the validity of that statement was assessed for personal data processing organizations located and operating in the Netherland. Firstly, the pre-existing national data protection law Wet bescherming persoonsgegevens (Wbp) and the GDPR were analyzed separately, with an emphasis on the obligations and conditions both set for data processing organizations. Consequently, these analyses were compared in order to obtain an overview of differences in terms of obligations and conditions. Finally, these differences were analyzed on their implications for data processing organizations and interviews were conducted to collect opinions on and experiences with compliance of data protection legislation. The results of the study firstly show that the differences in terms of obligations between the GDPR and Wbp are modest, and secondly suggest that the implications of these differences for data processing organizations in The Netherlands are rather limited. Keywords: GDPR, Wbp, personal data, data protection, compliance
