The General Data Protection Regulation  (GDPR)  has been in force since 25 May 2018. How do you ensure that you comply with GDPR? Brand Compliance helps you in this with the BC 5701 standard.

What is BC 5701?

BC 5701:2018, version 2 is a standards framework developed by Brand Compliance in collaboration with experts in data protection and information security. The standard is based on the Dutch legislation implementing the GDPR and translates the principles into practical implementable procedures and measures. The standard follows a management system approach.

Why a standard for GDPR?

There is currently no official standard for GDPR certification. BC 5701 was developed in response to the demands of our clients who wanted a practical framework to bring their business operations into line with GDPR.

For whom is the standard important?

BC 5701 is applicable for all organisations that fulfil the role of controller and/or processor of personal data, regardless of size. For example, if you work as an HR or Marketing Manager with privacy-sensitive personal data or if you ensure within your organisation that the business operations are in line with the GDPR. A practical framework with points of reference is a must. After successful implementation of the standard, certification is possible.
