EDPS training in Luxembourg: New EU data protection rules in your daily work

Dates: 1 and 2 October 2018

Location: Court of Justice, Luxembourg

The law applicable to EU institutions and bodies when they process personal data of individuals is about to change. The new Regulation will come into effect in 2018 (repealing the existing Regulation (EC) 45/2001) and has significant implications for all those dealing with personal data in their work.

As part of the EDPS training campaign for EU institutions, EDPS staff will deliver two practical training sessions for EU staff members working in Luxemburg. The course gives you a practical overview of data protection principles, your institution's accountability in practice, how to embed data protection principles in new procedures and projects, what to do in case of personal data breaches, how to ensure data protection compliance in procurement procedures and much more. This course aims to help you prepare for these new rules.

More information and registration for EU staff members working in Luxembourg through EU learn.

Phase-out of prior checks under Article 27 of Regulation (EC) No. 45/2001

In preparation for the 'new Regulation 45', many DPOs ask about the 'phase-out' of prior checks under Article 27 of the 'old' Regulation 45. This letter, sent in reply to a request from the DPOs of the Executive Agencies, sets out the current EDPS approach on this topic.

Time: 12.00 - 14.00
Location: EUSA, Jean-André de Motstraat 24, 1040 Etterbeek

EU institutions' managers can enrol online here in EU learn.

Trainings for Heads of Unit/Heads of Sector given by the EDPS in the framework of the European School of Administration (EUSA) lunch conference.

Subject/purpose of the training

Everyday, Heads of Units/ Heads of Sectors in the EU institutions and bodies collect, use or store (process) personal data in the course of their work. From selection and recruitment, staff appraisals, administrative inquiries, organising meetings, managing visitors to dealing with contracts, grants and tenders, personal data is everywhere! Also, drafting legislative proposals, implementing or delegated acts (or international agreements) may lead to processing of personal data in many cases.

The law applicable to the EU institutions and bodies when they process personal data of individuals is about to change. The new Regulation will come into effect in 2018 (repealing Regulation (EC) 45/2001) and has significant implications for all those dealing with personal data in their work.

The updated rules will impose new obligations but will also remove some administrative burdens. This course aims to help you prepare for these new rules. The course gives you a practical overview of your obligations as Heads of Units/Heads of Sectors within the EU institutions: data protection's principles, your institution's "accountability" in practice, how to embed data protection principles in new procedures and projects under your responsibility, what to do in case of personal data breaches, how to ensure data protection compliance in your procurement procedures and much more.
