The Council of Europe (CoE) announced, on October 18, 2023, that Portugal joined the Protocol amending the Convention for the Protection of Individuals with Regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data (Convention 108+), becoming the 29th country to do so.

In particular, the CoE noted that the Permanent Representation of Portugal to the CoE deposited its ratification instrument in the presence of the Deputy Secretary General of the CoE.

Lastly, the CoE recalled the minimum threshold for Convention 108+ to enter into force is 38 ratifications, and that, this year, Convention 108+ has seen nine countries joining it.
