CJEU Advocate General releases Opinion on the right to erasure

On Thursday, 30 May, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) Advocate General (AG) issued a non-binding Opinion in Case C-200/23 concerning the right to erasure of personal data. The background of the case involves a preliminary ruling requested by the Supreme Administrative Court of Bulgaria.

The AG considered that Articles 17 and 23(1) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) should be interpreted as precluding national legislation or practices that hinder an individual's right to obtain the erasure of their personal data from the authority responsible for maintaining the commercial register of a Member State. Additionally, the AG stressed that an authority acting as a controller cannot evade its obligation to fulfill an erasure request promptly solely on the grounds of not receiving communication of such a copy.
