In the every changing and complicated global landscape of data privacy and protection compliance, DataGuidance is in our opinion one of the very best resources out there. DataGuidance has not only organized and simplified all the different regulatory content into one easy find location, they have sought out guidance from local legal counsel to provide a much clearer and simplified meaning to complicated data protection regulations.

EU: Commission to decide on New Zealand's adequacy in October

The EU Commission will publish its decision on whether New Zealand's data protection regime offers adequate data protection in October 2012, a spokesperson for the EU Commission told DataGuidance on 26 September. The decision will follow the Article 29 Working Party (WP29)'s opinion on New Zealand, adopted on 4 April 2011, which found that the country ensures an adequate level of protection within the meaning of the Data Protection Directive (95/46/EC).

Katrine Evans, the country's Assistant Privacy Commissioner, told DataGuidance: "Following the positive opinion from the Article 29 Working Party, the next steps in the adequacy process are to get the tick from the Article 31 Group and the sign-off from the European Commission itself. As New Zealand has already made the necessary changes to bring our law into line, we're not anticipating having to do anything further. "

Kathryn Dalziel, Partner at Taylor Shaw Barristers & Solicitors in New Zealand, told DataGuidance that the EU Commission has sufficient information to determine adequacy and there should be no barrier to that finding.
