Two years after the entry into application of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Commission will be reporting on its application across Member States.
On 1 April 2020, a Roadmap was launched by the Commission and in parallel with a period for stakeholder feedback until 29 April 2020. During that period, stakeholders were able to share their input with the Commission, which will ultimately feed into the Commission’s report on the GDPR.
The Commission’s Roadmap explains that the Commission’s Report will look to evaluate the application of the GDPR in particular as regards international transfer of personal data to third countries and the cooperation and consistency mechanisms between national data protection authorities.
The publication of this Roadmap comes as no surprise as the Commission had announced in their 2020 Commission Work Programme – specifically in the field A New Push for European Democracy – that they would be reviewing GDPR and would work to develop a Commission Report on the application of the General Data Protection Regulation during the second quarter of 2020.
