On Thursday, 21 September, the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) and the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) released a joint opinion on the European Commission's proposal for a regulation on additional procedural rules for the enforcement of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The harmonisation law proposal aims to streamline cross-border cooperation and procedural differences across the EU to ensure the timely completion of investigations and delivery of swift remedies for individuals. The EDPB and EDPS gave positive feedback on the Commission's efforts and offered several recommendations to improve the consensus-finding proposals. The recommendations include ensuring concerned supervisory authorities (CSAs) are more involved in the different steps of the procedure to avoid potential disputes at a later stage. The EDPB and EDPS stressed that the proposal should not unduly restrict the ability of CSAs to raise relevant and reasoned objections on a draft decision and urged the co-legislators not to change the current right to be heard approach in the dispute resolution procedure. The EDPB and EDPS also recommended introducing a specific provision to address the existing practical obstacles to efficient cooperation between the national DPAs and the EDPS.
In the same press release, the EDPB and EDPS jointly submitted a contribution to the European Commission's public consultation on the template report for the description of consumer profiling techniques under the Digital Markets Act (DMA).
