California’s unanimously passed privacy bill takes its cues from the EU’s GDPR and may significantly shift the legal landscape in the U.S.
Background: the EWSR
In March 2018 the Rotterdam District Court found reefer operator Seatrade and two of its directors criminally liable for breach of the EU Waste Shipment Regulation (EWSR). The decision was the first time that a shipowner has been held criminally liable under the EWSR for the illegal export of vessels for demolition. It has thus placed focus on the EWSR, its restrictive terms and their implications for the scrapping of vessels.
The General Office of the State Council of the People’s Republic of China issued a new national-level regulation, the Measures for the Management of Scientific Data (the “Measures”), governing all aspects of scientific data related activities. Since its publication, the Measures have been widely debated among foreign companies doing R&D activities in China. In this client alert, we will be discussing the main obligations imposed by the Measures, as well as providing guidance on this new regulation.
