The new data protection regulation, GDPR, entered into force on 25 May 2018. The data protection regulation includes stricter rules for the processing of personal data, increased compliance checks, and stronger protection for you as an individual. The fines for non-compliance are high and may reach up to 5-10 million for public authorities.

Since the summer 2018, instructions are in place on how to implement the law in the University’s operations. The instructions are divided into different areas of operation and are published on the Staff website at The instructions are currently only available in Swedish but some of them will be translated shortly.
