Dear European Data Protection Supervisor,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

From 12 December 2018, under Regulation (EU) 1725/2018 all European institutions and bodies have a duty to report certain types of personal data breaches to the EDPS. Every EU institution must do this within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach, where feasible.

I request a list of all such notifications, including what institution reported them, the date, the type of breach and a brief summary in each case.

Yours faithfully,

Alexander Fanta

European Data Protection Supervisor, Europäischen Datenschutzbeauftragten

Dear Mr Fanta,

 

We refer to your email of 26 February 2020 in which you made an access to
documents to the EDPS, registered with case number 2020-0251.

 

The EDPS is currently handling your request. We are examining the
requested documents in order to assess whether (full or partial) access
can be granted or not. However, due to the fact that most of the
information is stemming from other EU institutions, bodies and agencies,
we have to consult them in line with Article 4(4) of Regulation 1049/2001.
All of the concerned institutions have not yet been consulted and, from
the institutions which have been, some of them have already requested an
extended deadline to provide their reply to the EDPS. Therefore, the EDPS
will not be in a position to respond within the original time limit of 15
working days which expires 18 March. We have therefore decided to extend
the time limit by 15 working days in accordance with Article 7(3) of
Regulation (EC) 1049/2001. You should expect to receive a reply from the
EDPS by 8 April 2020.

 

We apologise for the delay and any inconvenience this might cause.

 

Kind regards,

 

 

  EDPS Secretariat
