EDRM’s GDPR project team has released its first document, which analyzes terms that are commonly used in e-discovery but take on different meanings under GDPR.
The document lays the foundation for future efforts, said Jim Waldron, director of EDRM. Future work could include developing guidance on data transfer and the creation of a formal code of conduct in line with the European Data Protection Board (EDPB), which provides interpretation of the regulations.
In developing the document, the GDPR drafting team analyzed current case law, GDPR provisions, and scholarly interpretations of GDPR terms. The team’s first document, Decoding GDPR, defines critical terminology related to GDPR. The paper was published about circulated to the full EDRM membership for comment prior to publication.
