Data Protection Act amendments

The amendments to the Federal Data Protection Act (FDPA; in German: Bundesdaten-schutzgesetz - BDSG) passed parliament (the Bundestag) on July 3, and on July 10, the second chamber (the Bundesrat - Federal Council) decided not to raise objections. The act now only needs signature by the President and promulgation. It will, with limited exceptions, enter into force on September 1, 2009.
