General report on "Measuring compliance with Regulation (EC) 45/2001 in EU institutions and bodies"
According to Article 41, paragraph 2 of Regulation (EC) 45/2001, the European Data Protection Supervisor is responsible for monitoring and ensuring the application of the Regulation. In March 2007, the EDPS launched a procedure known as "Spring 2007" as part of an effort to measure compliance with the Regulation in the various institutions and agencies and to take stock of the progress made so far.
The draft EU GDPR includes several novelties that affect the role of the DPOs within the EU and the EDPS has therefore reviewed its position paper on the role of the DPO.
The revised paper intends to provide guidance for DPOs in their new role building on the principles and recommendations contained in the original version from 2005.
