Welcome to the 65th monthly newsletter designed to keep BIIA members informed of the significant developments on the policy dossiers being worked on in geographical territories that members operate in.   To download the document please click on this link: BIIA Monthly Regulatory Newsletter 051022

BIIA would like to thank its fellow industry association, ACCIS, for allowing us to re-use certain information that they have published on regulatory developments within Europe


In this 65th Edition, the first since the summer break, we have a strong focus on data in terms of privacy and security with regulators in a number of countries taking action to ensure citizens’ data is protected. As regulators continue to become more aware of the growth in data as a result of the digital evolution we will no doubt continue to see further action being taken.

We are keen to ensure that we cover as many relevant regulatory developments as we can in this newsletter so if you have any items you feel would be worth incorporating please do get in contact with Neil Munroe, Deputy Managing Director and Editor of the Regulatory Newsletter by email @ munroen@biia.com.
