Regulation (EU) 2018/1725 lays down the data protection obligations for the EU institutions and bodies when they process personal data and develop new policies.
The Regulation repeals Regulation (EC) 45/2001, and, in line with GDPR, adopts a principle-based approach.
The new legal instrument ensures that EU institutions and bodies provide transparent and easily accessible information on how personal data is used, as well as foresee clear mechanisms for individuals to exercise their rights; it also reconfirms, clarifies and enhances the role of data protection officers within each EU institution and 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.
