Code on the processing of personal data

The Italian code applicable to data processing (Codice in materia di protezione dei dati personali) was enforced on Jan 1, 2004 by “Decreto Legislativo 196 del 30 giugno 2003”.

The Code was the first attempt to harmonise and organise all previous pieces of legislation regarding privacy and related matters.

The document is a collection of all the provisions dictated by Legge 675/1996 and following degrees, regulations and ethics codes, in addition to Directive 2002/58/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 July 2002 concerning the processing of personal data and the protection of privacy in the electronic communications sector (Directive on privacy and electronic communications)
