The European Union is making good progress on data protection, with most institutions now meeting requirements – although Community agencies are doing less well.
This news comes from the second European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) report into compliance.
Peter Hustinx, supervisor at EDPS, said: “I am pleased to see that compliance with data protection rules is developing in Community institutions and agencies. Further progress is however needed to fully translate those legal obligations in concrete technical and organisational arrangements that enable privacy safeguards to be ensured.”
