France’s Law for the Modernization of the Health System, adopted earlier this year, applies to all processing of health data for the purpose of evaluating or analyzing medical treatments and preventive actions.
The Law amends the Data Protection Law of 1978, creating a new framework for obtaining authorization to process health data, as well as a new consent requirement.
Requirements for processing interventional and non-interventional human biomedical research data (such as clinical trial data) are not affected by the new law.
