EDPS mobile app

EU Data Protection is a free app for mobile devices from the EDPS. As well as containing the history of the reform process, this app allows you to consult the texts of Regulation 2016/679 (the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR) alongside the original rules contained in the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC, the initial legislative proposal of the European Commission, and the recommendations issued by the EDPS in 2015.  The new Directive 2016/680 for the police and criminal justice sector can be read alongside the original rules contained in the Council Framework Decision 2008/977/JHA, the original legislative proposal of the European Commission, and the recommendations of the EDPS. All the texts can be loaded in any given combination to compare them side-by-side (maximum two texts on smartphones due to the limitation of screen size).
