North Rhine-Westphalia: LDI NRW accredits first monitoring body for codes of conduct

The North Rhine-Westphalia State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information ('LDI NRW') announced, on 14 September 2022, that it had accredited the first monitoring body for codes of conduct in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) ('GDPR'). In particular, the LDI NRW noted that the monitoring body, TIGGES DCO GmbH, will be entrusted to check compliance with the code of conduct for credit agencies which was approved by the LDI NRW in 2018.

In addition, the LDI NRW highlighted that the monitoring body will act as a central point of contact for citizens, and that it can bring about clarifications for all credit agencies involved in the code of conduct. However, the LDI NRW clarified that it remains responsible for the supervision of both the credit agencies and the monitoring body itself.
