Our Opinions relate primarily to proposals for legislation and are addressed to the EU legislator (the European Parliament, the Council and the European Commission), with the aim of flagging main data protection concerns together with our recommendations.

These Opinions are issued in response to requests by the Commission, which is legally obliged to seek our guidance on any legislative proposal, or draft implementing or delegated acts, as well as recommendations and proposals to the Council in the context of international agreements according to Article 42(1) of Regulation (EU) 2018/1725 where there is an impact on the protection of personal data. We also issue own-initiative opinions as part of our role as advisor on all matters relating to the processing of personal data.
