The data protection reform package includes a general data protection regulation (the "Regulation") which shall repeal and replace the Directive 95/46/EC on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data ("Directive 95/46/EC"), as well a new data protection directive for the police and criminal justice sector (the "Directive").

The data protection reform aims at creating a harmonized legal framework in all Member States and removing the existing barriers which limit cross-border data flow and create uncertainty and distrust among the citizens regarding their personal data.
