Charter of Fundamental Rights
The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, which became legally binding in 2009, sets out the fundamental rights protected in the EU in a single document. Those rights designed to uphold the Dignity, Freedoms, Equality, Solidarity, Citizens' Rights and Justice of individuals in the EU are inalienable and universal. The rights include the right to privacy and the right to data protection which serve as the foundation to the work of the EDPS.
The EDPS Annual Report 2021 provides an overview of the EDPS’ supervisory activities that contribute to shaping Europe’s digital future. In particular, the Annual Report 2021 includes the EDPS’ work on international transfers of personal data; on COVID-19; on the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice; as well as the EDPS' legislative consultations and technology monitoring activities, to name a few examples.
The Executive Summary of the EDPS Annual Report 2021 will be made available in all official languages of the EU in due course.
The year 2020 was unique for the world and, by extension, for the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS). Like many other organisations, the EDPS had to adapt its working methods as an employer, but also its work since the COVID-19 health crisis strengthened the call for the protection of individuals' privacy.
This Annual Report provides an insight into all EDPS activities in 2020.
The Executive Summary of the EDPS Annual Report 2020 will be made available in all official languages of the EU in due course.
