What is Netherlands’s GDPR Implementation Act (Uitvoeringswet AVG) ?

The Dutch GDPR Implementation Act (Uitvoeringswet AVG) is the Dutch data protection and privacy regulation. This Implementation Act supplements the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and tailors its provisions to the particular national context. The Dutch data protection authority (‘AP’) is the relevant data protection authority in Netherlands. 

The Implementation Act protects the confidentiality of individuals’ data. As such, it contains a number of provisions and requirements related to the processing of personal data of individuals. In Netherlands, the right to privacy includes data privacy, which is a recognized human right and is part of the national Constitution and therefore, is of fundamental value.
