International Agreements

As data flows digitally across borders, it essential that the protection of fundamental rights is ensured.  In our role as advisor to the EU legislator, the EDPS continues to offer his expertise on EU proposals for international agreements, including in the areas of trade, law enforcement (for instance on PNR agreements with non-EU countries) and administrative cooperation. The EDPS recommendations aim to ensure that individuals in the EU do not forfeit their rights when their personal data is transferred outside of the EU.

Leading by Example: EDPS 2015-2019

This report provides an overview of the activities carried out by the EDPS from 2015-2019. In particular, it focuses on how the EDPS has worked towards implementing the objectives set out in the EDPS Strategy 2015-2019, which relate to digitisation, global partnerships and the modernisation of data protection. This involved not only contributing historical pieces of legislation, such as the General Data Protection Regulation and Regulation 2018/1725, but also bringing the concepts of ethics and accountability to the forefront of data protection discourse and application.

Statement: EDPS supports EU legislator on security but recommends re-thinking on EU PNR

Europe is under attack. In the wake of new terrorist atrocities, the EU and the governments of its Member States are under pressure to take meaningful action.

More than ever, this is a time for solidarity in Europe; for the EU to stand united around our values and fundamental freedoms. The data protection community continues to offer its unconditional support in these difficult times and acknowledges that the EU needs to put reinforced measures in place to address the extraordinary difficulties facing Europe today.
