EU: EDPB sets out priorities for 2024-2027 and DPF redress mechanisms

On April 18, 2024, the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) published its strategy for 2024-2027. In particular, the EDPB clarified that its four priorities are:

  • enhancing harmonization and promoting compliance;
  • reinforcing a common enforcement culture and effective cooperation;
  • safeguarding data protection in the digital and cross-regulatory landscape; and
  • contributing to the global dialogue on data protection.

This includes the continued provision of assistance to supervisory authorities for enforcing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Law Enforcement Directive (LED), alongside facilitating the interplay between the GDPR and LED with new legislation, such as the EU AI Act, the Digital Services Act (DSA), and the Digital Markets Act (DMA).

Regarding artificial intelligence (AI) specifically, the EDPB noted that it will provide guidance on data protection and the correct implementation of the GDPR. This includes a focus on areas with significant risks for data subjects or where the data subjects belong to a vulnerable group, such as children.

On the EU-US Data Privacy Framework (DPF), the EDPB noted that a public information note and template complaint forms to facilitate the implementation of DPF redress mechanisms are part of its 2024-2027 strategy.
