Data Protection Officer
Each EU institution, body or agency (EU institutions) has appointed a data protection officer (DPO). It is the DPO's duty to ensure in an independent manner the internal application of the data protection rules applicable to the EU institution. This also involves other tasks such as ensuring that controllers and individuals (data subjects) are informed of their rights and obligations, and cooperating with the EDPS at his request or on their own initiative. A list of data protection officers can be found on the EDPS website.
These comments refer to the draft implementing rules on the Data Protection Officer (DPO) at Eurojust ('the draft rules'). Our comments refer to the document submitted on 24 July 2020.
