The current EU Directive on Data Protection, has been described as the most far reaching Data Protection regime in the world. Still, the ongoing work within the EU to enact a new General Data Protection Regulation seems to be heading towards an even stricter regime. Medical researchers in biobanking and epidemiology have had quite a fright on behalf of the proposal, especially the amendments suggested by rapporteur Albrecht of the European Parliament’s LIBE Committee in December 2012, that to a large extent were accepted by the Committee in a October 2013 and the European Parliament in its first reading of the proposal in March 2014. In this short overview, the status of the legislative procedures will be addressed, a comment on the consequences of changing the legal form from a directive to a regulation, as well as a brief description of the content of the General Data Protection Regulation relevant to research on health data.
