EDPB releases opinion on code of conduct monitoring bodies

According to the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), the European Data Protection Board has published its opinion on draft accreditation requirements for the codes of conduct monitoring bodies submitted by the Dutch data protection authority. Pursuant to article 41 of the GDP, the Board argued that the requirements set out by the Dutch DPA “may lead to an inconsistent application,” specifically as it relates to a monitoring body’s independence and effectiveness.
