IDEAL document shredders are GDPR-compliant!


The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is now in force. This means considerably more stringent data protection rules, which will also affect personal data in paper format. If you have missed this date, you'll need to act quickly. IDEAL document shredders have it covered.



25th May 2018, the day the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force, has now been and gone. And so has the official deadline for making the necessary changes concerning data protection. There is now a huge amount of pressure on companies and public administrations that have not yet responded to the change in law. To comply with these rules with regard to personal data in paper format, an immediate course of action must be taken, whereby document shredders should be integrated into every data protection concept as soon as possible. Non-compliance with the considerably more stringent data protection regulations will incur severe penalties. As well as legally compliant operations, proof of compliance with data protection regulations must also be provided.
