Code approval procedure

The entities willing to draft a code of conduct shall submit the draft code to the President of the Office. The request shall be accompanied by the information on the conducted consultations and their outcome. The information on the conducted consultations does not  have to comprise all the reported comments, but only the most important conclusions resulting from them along with the draft author’s reference to the presented standpoints. If the President of the Office considers the scope of consultations to be insufficient, he or she may call upon the draft author to carry out new consultations, indicating their scope.

The President of the Personal Data Protection Office provides an opinion on whether the draft code of conduct complies with the GDPR and approves it, if he or she finds that it provides sufficient appropriate safeguards. Issuing the decision on approval of the code leads to including the code in the register kept by the Office and the European Data Protection Board.
