What Czech Testing Laboratories Need to Know about GDPR

On 25 October 2018, the Czech Testing Laboratories Association organised a workshop for the Association members. Held in the city of Kroměříž, the workshop took a closer look also at the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in relation to the testing laboratories and their activities. Tomáš Nielsen of NIELSEN MEINL familiarised the workshop participants with the latest experience in implementing GDPR in organisations. “Meeting with the testing laboratory professionals was very interesting. Our discussion revealed a number of relatively specific issues constituting a valuable source of information for a lawyer practising in the said field; and revolved around our experience in implementing GDPR in practice,” Tomáš Nielsen said and added: “The workshop once again proved that organisations having implemented the data protection rules under the original national law make a successful transition to GDPR compliance; with the success of testing laboratories in implementing the data protection mechanisms being underpinned by their experience and expertise with proces management, as opposed to organisations active in other fields.“
