Wetsvoorstel bestuur en toezicht rechtspersonen

13.02.2017 NL law

Op 13 juni 2016 is het wetsvoorstel Bestuur en toezicht rechtspersonen ingediend bij de Tweede Kamer. Het wetsvoorstel beoogt niet om wijziging te brengen in bestaande bestuurs- en toezichtstructuren bij de verschillende soorten rechtspersonen, maar bevat vooral een verduidelijking van het reeds geldende juridische kader.

Voor naamloze en besloten vennootschappen bevat de wet heldere regels voor bestuur en toezicht. Met dit wetsvoorstel wil de Minister duidelijker in de wet aangeven wat de taken en verantwoordelijkheden zijn van bestuurders en commissarissen bij een vereniging, stichting, coöperatie of onderlinge waarborgmaatschappij. Het wetsvoorstel is nog aanhangig bij de Tweede Kamer. Op 9 september 2016 heeft de vaste commissie voor Veiligheid en Justitie het Verslag uitgebracht.

Voor meer informatie over dit wetsvoorstel verwijzen wij naar de Corporate Update van januari 2016.

General Data Protection Regulation comes into effect

Short Reads - On 25 May 2018, the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect. The GDPR replaces the EU's prior directive governing the processing and transfer of personal data, which was in place since 1995. As a regulation, the GDPR is directly applicable in all 28 EU member states and thus removes the need for national implementing legislation. However, the GDPR allows member states discretion in certain areas, as a result of which national legislation may still be implemented. In the Netherlands, the GDPR Implementation Act came into effect on 25 May 2018.
