Summary: The EEA Joint Committee adopted, on 6 July 2018, Decision No. 154/2018, incorporating the GDPR into the EEA Agreement, which made the GDPR directly applicable in Liechtenstein as of 20 July 2018. In December 2018, Liechtenstein implemented the GDPR through the DSG and DSV, which are closely aligned with the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) of 30 June 2017. The DSS has published guidance on, for example, international data transfers and adequacy, and the application of European cases concerning cookies in Liechtenstein. In October 2019, the Parliament unanimously passed the Law on Tokens and Trustworthy Technology Service Providers (Token and TT Service Provider Act) ('TVTG') (only available in German here), which includes comprehensive regulation of the token economy and rules on anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism ('AML/CFT') and went into force on 1 January 2020.
