Supervisory Framework 2018-2019

New EU legislation on privacy has come into force on 25 May 2018: the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Directive on the protection of personal data processed for the purposes of the investigation and prosecution of criminal offences. This new legislation entails far-reaching changes to the protection of personal data, which also affect supervision and supervisory authorities.

The legislation bolsters the privacy rights of all EU residents, imposes stiffer requirements on organisations, and gives European privacy regulators greater powers to take action.

Supervisory framework

The Dutch Data Protection Authority (Dutch DPA) has made internal organisational changes to facilitate the effective implementation of this new legislation.

This effort included drafting a new supervisory framework setting out the Dutch DPA's mission and ambitions, the core values to which it adheres in performing its tasks, and the areas on which it intends to focus.
