Some EU nations have yet to meet the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation, forcing EU Commissioner of Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality Věra Jourová to call for them to respect "the spirit of the GDPR," Euractiv reports. Jourová named Greece, Slovenia and Portugal among the countries that had yet to meet GDPR standards despite the legislation being a year old. “Compliance is a dynamic process and does not happen overnight,” Jourová said. “Our key priority for months to come is to ensure proper and equal implementation in the member states. We urge the member states to respect to the letter and the spirit of the GDPR.” Jourová did not provide a specific deadline for those countries to fall in line with the GDPR, but she reiterated the European Commission's commitment to having the entire bloc meet the legislation's provisions by October.
