Formal comments of the EDPS on the Proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing European Labour Authority.
Regulation 45/2001 lays down the obligations for the EU institutions when they process personal data such as the obligation for each of them to appoint a Data Protection Officer. It is also the Regulation that established the European Data Protection Supervisor to be the independent data protection authority who is tasked to ensure that the right to privacy is respected by European institutions and bodies and advise the EU legislator on subjects that have data protection implications. This Regulation is currently under review in order to be brought in line with the General Data Protection Regulation. The European Commission published a proposal on 10 January 2017
In preparation for the 'new Regulation 45', many DPOs ask about the 'phase-out' of prior checks under Article 27 of the 'old' Regulation 45. This letter, sent in reply to a request from the DPOs of the Executive Agencies, sets out the current EDPS approach on this topic.
