General Data Protection Regulation Statement
A new EU regulation will soon come into effect that impacts how all organisations collect, hold and process people’s
personal data. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will become law on 25th May 2018 and will introduce
new responsibilities that supersede the existing Data Protection Act.
Simply put, EU residents will now have greater say over what, how, why, where, and when their personal data is used,
processed, or disposed of. This rule clarifies how the EU personal data laws apply even beyond the borders of the EU.
Any organisation that works with EU residents’ personal data in any manner, irrespective of location, has obligations to
protect the data.
As we approach May 2018, Meters UK Limited is focused on its GDPR compliance responsibilities. During our implementation
period, we are evaluating new requirements and restrictions imposed by GDPR and will take any action necessary to ensure
that we handle all data in compliance with the applicable law.
Meters UK Limited is committed to meeting any contractual obligations for procedures, products and services and is
approaching GDPR compliance on three main fronts:
• To ensure our own compliance as a company that holds and processes people’s personal data.
• To ensure our partners and suppliers adhere to the highest standards of compliance and GDPR regulation.
• To ensure that our programs, software applications and service solutions all support our customers’ GDPR compliance efforts.
Meters UK Limited have undertaken a full review of all internal security and privacy policies to ensure that all personal data
within, or passing through the company, will be handled in accordance with GDPR regulations.
We will implement the relevant tools and practises to ensure the safeguarding of any data handled by Meters UK Limited and
all of its employees.
Employees will be made aware of all GDPR restrictions, with the relevant training provided as necessary.
Meters UK Limited will undertake a review of all supplier and third party contracts and arrangements to ensure that all of our
partners continue to apply the same high standards of data protection.
We are committed to providing the necessary facilities so our customers are able to respond to requests for deletion,
rectification and anonymization of data as well as, ‘The right to be forgotten’, where applicable.
