The US Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) has compiled a very useful list of the country-by-country guidelines and
supporting information on the impact of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
- If you are new to the General Data Protection Regulation, you may want to review the text of the regulation to familiarize yourself with basic GDPR concepts and terminology: https://gdpr-info.eu/ Keep in mind that the scope of the GDPR is broader than U.S. privacy laws such as HIPAA.
- The names and website addresses of each country’s data protection authority are seen in Columns B and C.
- General GDPR Guidance documents are listed in Column D. If the information is not available in English, an online translation program can be helpful.
- The table lists guidances specific to Research (Column E), Legal Basis (Column F), Consent (Column G), and International Data Transfer (Column H). Country-level interpretations and procedures are likely to evolve over time, and data protection authorities may release new guidances.
