Axel Voss, a member of the European Parliament who helped to create the GDPR, has stated that after just three years in force, the regulation is out of date and needs to be heavily revised to stay abreast of the post-pandemic world. He explained that the legislation needs updating to reflect the global shift to home working that has resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as to cater for the multitude of new technologies that have been developed since the GDPR entered into force. Most notably, the use of Artificial Intelligence has grown exponentially over the last several years. It remains to be seen whether any significant revision is likely anytime soon, as other European Parliament members, such as Sophie Veld, claim that the GDPR is still fit for purpose.
