On June 5, 2013, Hunton & Williams hosted a seminar in the firm’s London office: Tracking the Draft EU Regulation ̶ General Update and the Concept of the “One-Stop Shop.” Bridget Treacy, Rosemary Jay and Tim Hickman of Hunton & Williams gave a presentation on the operation and effects of the “consistency mechanism” to be introduced in the proposed General Data Protection Regulation. The June 5 update was the most recent in Hunton & Williams’ ongoing series of Executive Briefings on the Proposed Regulation. The consistency mechanism is intended to ensure that, once the Proposed Regulation comes into force, it is applied consistently across all 27 EU Member States. Accordingly, the mechanism is of particular importance to organizations that carry out any processing of EU personal data, as it will have significant implications for the regulation of such organizations.
