Slovenia: Personal Data Protection Act enters into force

The Information Commissioner ('the Commissioner') issued, on 26 January 2023, a statement reminding of the entry into force, on the same date, of the Personal Data Protection Act ('ZVOP-2'), following its publication, on 27 December 2022, in the Official Gazette. In particular, the Commissioner highlighted that the ZVOP-2 introduces some important changes, including:

  • a revised regime on biometrics;
  • additional requirements for data protection officers ('DPOs');
  • specific requirements on data security, traceability, and Data Protection Impact Assessments ('DPIAs'); and
  • the regulation of the processing of personal data for research, archival, and statistical purposes.
