Isle of Man

The Data Protection Act 2018 (Act) is the principal piece of primary legislation addressing data protection in the Isle of Man. The Act allows for the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the EU Law Enforcement Directive (LED) to be applied to the Island by way of Order and Regulations.

The Data Protection (Application of GDPR) Order 2018 implemented GDPR into domestic Isle of Man Law and is supplemented by the GDPR and LED Implementing Regulations.

The Act, Order and Implementing Regulations compose the Island's data protection Law.

The Isle of Man is not part of the EU but in 2004, the European Commission formally recognised the Isle of Man's data protection legislation offered an equivalent level of protection.

The Isle of Man Information Commissioner is the independent regulatory authority for the purposes of the Act, Order and Implementing regulations, the website is: Isle of Man Information Commissioner ( where detailed and information and guidance can be found or can be contacted:

The Data Protection (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2017 (DOL) was drawn up in consultation with the European Union to maintain Guernsey's Adequacy status.

Since the DPL came into force, two Ordinances and several sets of Regulations have been passed to augment Guernsey's DPL framework.

Although Guernsey is not part of the EU, the DPL is based around the same fundamental data protection principles upon which previous legislation was based. However, the scope and application of those principles has been expanded to reflect the globalisation and digitalisation that has occurred in the intervening period.

The Office of the Data Protection Authority is the independent regulatory authority for the purposes of the DPL, their website is: Home · ODPA where information on the DPL can be found.

They can also be contacted:
