IAB Europe voices concerns over GDPR harmonisation law

17/01/2024 | IAB Europe

IAB Europe has outlined its concerns to Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) concerning the draft report on the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) procedural regulation (harmonisation law) by the Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) Committee published in November 2023. If implemented as is, the report poses a risk to a consistent and fair GDPR cross-border complaints process for all organisations. In response, IAB Europe has written to the MEPs, urging them to consider six key recommendations to address the issues. 

The recommendations include: 

  • Maintaining the administrative nature of cross-border complaints, 
  • Respecting the GDPR governance model, 
  • Allowing for early resolution, 
  • Respecting the confidentiality of business information, 
  • Harmonising the defendant's right to be heard, 
  • Introducing flexible time limits for the defendant's views.
