Personal Data Protection Ukraine, EU……and others

June 26, 2010

Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych has signed a law on the protection of personal data, his press service has reported.

The Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s parliament, passed the law on June 1, 2010.

The law stipulates that enterprises, establishments and organizations of all forms of ownership, agencies of state government or the agencies of local government, private persons, and entrepreneurs that process personal data in line with the law can be owners or managers of databases of personal data.

According to the law, databases of personal data are liable to obligatory state registration through relevant recording a state register of personal data made by the authorized state agencies for the protection of personal data. The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine approves the regulations on the state register of databases of personal data and the procedure for their use.

Jolly good eh dear readers?  Personal data protection reaches Ukraine across the board…….just in time for……..

One has to wonder why, in this day and age, the EU cannot seperate a single transaction of interest to the USA from the bulk data.

Will this pass through the EU parliament?  Hopefully not (again).

Will there be legal challenges if passed?  Seems guaranteed as this will no doubt break numerous Sovereign member states own national laws……first cry’s of “foul”, I suspect will come from Germany, as it certainly breaks their privacy rules.
