Belgium: IAB Europe reacts to Belgian DPA's notification to proceed with action plan examination
Interactive Advertising Bureau Europe ('IAB Europe') published, on 7 October 2022, a press release in which it announced that the Belgian Data Protection Authority ('Belgian DPA') had informed IAB Europe that it intends to pursue its examination of the action plan submitted in April with a view to its possible validation. In particular, IAB Europe detailed its reaction to the same, outlining that the announcement occurs despite the Belgian Market Court's interim ruling of 7 September 2022 and referral of questions to the Court of Justice of the European Union. Furthermore, IAB Europe highlighted that it welcomes opportunities to dialogue with the Belgian DPA, although it believes that the Belgian DPA's initial decision cannot be enforced.
