Global Privacy Enforcement Network (GPEN)

The Personal Data Protection Office (previously the Inspector General for Personal Data Protection) has been the official member of the Global Privacy Enforcement Network - GPEN) since November 2010.

Having regard to the initiatives of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), the International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners, the EU Article 29 Working Party, and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) stressing the need for international privacy enforcement cooperation, eleven privacy enforcement authorities established on 10 March 2010 the Global Privacy Enforcement Network (GPEN) to strengthen personal privacy protections in this global context.

It was already on 28 October 2010 that the Inspector General for Personal Data Protection participated in the subsequent GPEN meeting in Jerusalem, and in November 2010 it became the official member of the Network.  

As set forth in the GPEN Action Plan, the mission of this Network includes inter alia exchanging information and experience on privacy enforcement at the international level and supporting dialogue with organisations in this regard, as well as creating contact point directory of authorities interested in international cooperation on cross-border investigations and enforcement matters.
