Opinion on the Proposal for a Regulation amending Regulation (EC) No. 1073/1999 concerning investigations conducted by the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF), JO C 91, 26.04.2007, p. 1
The EDPS agrees with the significance of the goals and objectives pursued by the proposed amendments, especially regarding the procedural guarantees afforded to individuals. However, when it comes to personal data protection, the proposal could be further improved without jeopardising the objectives that it pursues. Concerns relate to the right of information, access and rectification as well as exchanges of personal information. The EDPS also proposes measures regarding the confidentiality of whistleblowers.
