On 25th May 2018 the new General Data Protection Regulations come into force.

EACC will be identifying what Community Councils need to know and action they should take to comply. The City of Edinburgh Council has published guidelines and on initial examination these appear to be daunting and honourous. Initial discussions with the author of the guidelines suggests this should not be so and only involves taking basic steps to comply with the regulations.

It is our intention to provide further information which Secretaries and other Office Bearers need to take to ensure compliance.

EACC belongs to every Edinburgh Community Council

Its aim is to provide support, advise and give a collective voice for community councils when facing the challenges community councillors encounter on an almost daily basis. No one person is more important than any other. All community councils have a voice on the EACC!!
