New Staff Regulations: what this implies in terms of consultations to the EDPS and notifications for prior checking

The modification of the Staff Regulations may imply certain changes to existing administrative decisions or the adoption of new administrative rules.
In this regard we would like to remind you of our policy on consultations which provide that in principle it is the DPO who is to be involved in the revision of administrative decisions unless there is a novel or complex issue.

As for prior check notifications, we would like to use this occasion to remind you of the procedure for an update of an existing notification (preferably one clean version and a mark-up version indicating the changes). Such an update only needs to be made in case of a change with regard to the protection of personal data. There should also be a cover letter from the DPO describing the main changes.
