Twelfth plenary session held for European Data Protection Board


This week, Brussels hosted the twelfth plenary session of the European Data Protection Board, during which a broad range of data privacy and cyber-security priorities were held open to debate.

Among key themes, members of the Board highlighted the necessity for a comprehensive agreement on cross-border access to electronically-stored evidence between Britain and the US.

The Board emphasised how such a UK-US agreement would have to contain robust procedural safeguards for fundamental rights.

A collective opinion was formulated, by which Board members agreed that all codes encompassing non-public authorities and entities must have accredited monitoring bodies in place to ensure that GDPR standards are always met.

The Board agreed on the need for the competence levels of a supervisory authority, should a change of circumstances occur.

An opinion was also reached by the Board regarding elements of personal data privacy regarding the processing of patients’ information within the eHealth Digital Service Infrastructure.

Within this opinion, the Board underlined the imperative that processing duties of the Commission are detailed explicitly within the Implementing Act.
