Regulation 2018/1725

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.

Annual Report 2020

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.
