Opinion of 4 June 2008 on the notification for prior checking regarding pre-employment and annual medical check-ups (Case 2007-176)

This opinion concerns the pre-employment and annual medical check-ups organized at the CPVO. The recommendations of the EDPS include the following:

Regarding data quality, the scope of data collected on the medical overview form and the information included on the certificate of fitness should be revised to comply with the principles of relevance and proportionality.  As to the conservation of the data, a reasonable, definite time frame must be established by the CPVO for the conservation of each category of employee and candidate medical data held by the CPVO. On information to data subjects, clear and specific information needs to be provided to data subjects regarding all items listed under Articles 11 and 12 of the Regulation. With respect to the pre-employment medical check-up, the EDPS also recommends the additional information on anti-discrimination referred to in point 3.8.4 of the Opinion. Finally, with regard to processing data on behalf of controllers, the service contracts concluded with the CPVO Physician and the CPVO Medical Centre should be modified to address data protection aspects pursuant to Article 23 of the Regulation. Instructions should be provided to the processors to comply with the minimum data protection safeguards recommended in this Opinion.

Publication 2012 Annual report - 'Smart, sustainable, inclusive Europe' : only with stronger and more effective data protection

Wednesday, 29 May, 2013

2013

In the course of 2012, we once again set new benchmarks in different areas of activity. In the supervision of EU institutions and bodies, when processing personal data, we interacted with more data protection officers in more institutions and bodies than ever before. In addition, we saw the effects of our new enforcement policy: most EU institutions and bodies, including many agencies, are making good progress in complying with the Data Protection Regulation, although there are still some which should increase their efforts.

In the consultation of new legislative measures, we issued a record number of opinions on a wide range of subjects. The Review of the EU legal framework for data protection was at the top of our agenda. However, the implementation of the Stockholm programme in the area of freedom, security and justice and the Digital Agenda, as well as issues in the internal market, such as financial sector reform and in public health and consumer affairs, also had an impact on data protection. We also increased our cooperation with other supervisory authorities.
