The GDPR is a new EU privacy regulation that provides higher levels of protection for EU citizen data.
The GDPR has a very far-reaching scope. It does not only apply to organizations located within the EU but also applies to organizations located outside of the EU if they offer goods or services to, or monitor the behaviour of, EU data subjects. It applies to all companies processing and holding personal data of data subjects residing in the European Union, regardless of the company’s location.
The GDPR will probably impact your veterinary practice as you collect and process EU personal data.
