Monitoring and enforcing compliance with Regulation (EU) 2018/1725

The EDPS’ role is to ensure effective protection of people’s fundamental rights and freedoms against the (mis)use of technologies, in particular in relation to the processing of personal data by the EU institutions, bodies, offices and agencies (collectively ‘EUIs’). More specifically, under Article 57 of Regulation (EU) 2018/1725 on data protection for the EUIs, one of our main tasks is to ‘monitor and enforce the application of this Regulation’. This paper explains how we will act in that role, explaining both to individuals whose data EUIs process (the data subjects) and the EUIs themselves what they can expect from us as the supervisory authority for EUI’s processing of personal data and what we expect EUIs to do.
