General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

16th April 2018

As some of our members may be aware, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) becomes enforceable from 25th May 2018, at which point businesses need to ensure they are fully compliant. The new regulation has been designed to simplify and unify data protection laws across all countries in the EU (including the UK, even after Brexit). Its aim is to strengthen and standardise data protection laws for individuals.

Consequently, the Building Safety Group (BSG) has taken the necessary steps to ensure compliancy with GDPR. This means that all information that we hold concerning you as an individual will be held and processed by the Building Safety Group (BSG) strictly in accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation 2018.

Such data will be used by BSG to provide you and your organisation with BSG services and to provide you with information about our planned activities and for related purposes. We will not, without your consent, supply your information to any third party except where (1) such a transfer is a necessary part of the services that we undertake, or (2) we are required to do so by the operation of the law.

Further details about BSG’s procedures with regard to GDPR can be found in our data Privacy Notice hosted on our website: Should you have any queries concerning BSG and GDPR, please contact the Managing Director
