Under Article 39(4) of Regulation (EU) 2018/1725, the EDPS shall adopt a list of the kinds of processing operations subject to a data protection impact assessment (DPIA). Under paragraph 5 of the same Article, the EDPS may adopt a list of the kinds of processing operations not subject to a DPIA. For further information on how to use this list, please see the Accountability on the ground toolkit.
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.
Accountability on the ground: Guidance on documenting processing operations for EU institutions, bodies and agencies (EUIs). These documents provide provisional guidance for controllers and DPO in the EUIs on how to generate records for their processing operations, how to decide whether they need to carry out data protection impact assessments (DPIAs), how to do DPIAs and when to do prior consultations to the EDPS (Articles 31, 39 and 40 of Regulation (EU) 2018/1725).
