SPAIN—Important reform of the data protection sanctions regime

Organic Act 15/1999, dated December 13, on Protection of Personal Data (Spanish acronym LOPD), is the legal reference framework in Spain on privacy matters. It is a law that is fulfilling a prime role in implementing the data protection culture in Spain and in other countries where it is being taken as an example. The act has been developed by its regulations, approved by Royal Decree 1720/2007. The LOPD has recently been amended by Act 2/2011, dated March 4, which introduced major reforms on the matter of sanction regimes.
