Prior-check Opinion on the European Parliament’s participation in the appointment procedure of the Executive Director, the Deputy Executive Director(s), the President of the Boards of Appeal, and the Chairpersons of the Boards of the European Union Intellectual Property Office (Case 2017-0345)
Prior-checking Opinion regarding the Feedback Event at the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) covering peer feedback for staff members and a 360° evaluation exercise for managers (case 2017-0136).
The peer feedback enables staff members to perform a self- assessment and provide and receive feedback about and from their peers, while the 360° feedback allows for managers receiving feedback from their peers and from direct report and line managers about their leadership skills. Individual and group feedback reports are both developed to provide an organizational overview of the results obtained through the peer and the 360º feedback exercises.
The EDPS recommended to revise the privacy statement clarifying that participants can decide to opt-out at any time and to define the purpose of the group reports and the categories of data covered.
Prior checking Opinion concerning ex-ante product quality audits (Case 2016-0477)
Organisations such as EUIPO ensure the quality of their output in different ways. One such way is checking the quality of decisions before it leaves the organization (ex-ante), recording the error rate and trends in the type and category of errors - and using a database to record this monitoring process.
As staff members remain identifiable in the process and are given feedback at individual level on the basis of this processing operation, this might lead to implications for their performance evaluation(on such processing operations, see EDPS Guidelines in the area of staff evaluation ). This is why the organization needs to comprehensively inform those concerned, grant all data subjects’ rights and ensure the accuracy of the data processed.
