New topic for EDPB’s coordinated enforcement action: the DPO

After the first use of cloud-based services by the public sector, second topic of EDPB’s coordinated enforcement action, will concern the designation and position of the data protection officer.

In a coordinated action, the EDPB prioritizes a certain topic for data protection authorities (DPAs) to work on at the national level. The results of these national actions are then bundled and analyzed, generating deeper insight into the topic and allowing for targeted follow-up on both the national and the EU level.

As a reminder, the coordinated action follows the EDPB’s decision to set up a Coordinated Enforcement Framework (“CEF”) in October 2020. The CEF is a key action of the EDPB under its 2021-2023 Strategy, together with the creation of a Support Pool of Experts (SPE). The two initiatives aim to streamline enforcement and cooperation among DPAs.

The objective is to “facilitate joint actions in a flexible but coordinated manner, ranging from joint awareness raising and information gathering to enforcement sweeps and joint investigations.”
