Spain: AEPD publishes socio-healthcare sector inspection action plan

The Spanish data protection authority ('AEPD') announced, on 2 June 2020, that it had published its inspection plan for the socio-healthcare sector ('the Inspection Plan'). In particular, the AEPD outlined that its ex officio inspections are preventive rather than sanctioning proceedings, with the purpose of obtaining a comprehensive vision, detecting deficiencies, and proposing improvements. In addition, the AEPD highlighted that the Inspection Plan includes recommendations aimed at public bodies, companies, and institutions that are owners of socio-health centres, pointing at necessary actions for the correct application of the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) ('GDPR') and Organic Law 3/2018, of 5 December 2018, on the Protection of Personal Data and Guarantee of Digital Rights.
