2007 Annual Report - Enhanced data protection needs to be delivered in practice

The report runs through the main features of the EDPS activities in 2007, notably with regard to his supervisory and consultative tasks.
The report highlights a considerable increase in the number of prior-checks relating to processing operations of personal data in Community institutions and bodies. The EDPS also gave further effect to his advisory role on new EU legislative proposals having an impact on data protection with the publication of 12 opinions. 
2007 saw the signing of the Lisbon Treaty that provides for an enhanced protection of personal data and whose impact for data protection will be closely monitored.
