Video-surveillance system - EESC and CoR

Prior-checking Opinion regarding the video-surveillance system of the European Economic Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions (Case 2017-0662)

The Opinion regards the rather sophisticated video-surveillance system of the European Economic Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions. In the light of the EDPS Guidelines on Video-surveillance and against the background of a data protection impact assessment conducted, it contains recommendations on covert surveillance (concealed cameras), the collection of special categories of data and applicable retention periods.
