Sweden: Supreme Administrative Court requests preliminary ruling from CJEU on applicable provisions when using body cameras

On June 14, 2024, the Supreme Administrative Court announced that it had requested a preliminary ruling from the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) on which articles of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) apply in cases where personal data is retrieved from body cameras.

The Supreme Administrative Court outlined that the question came about after the Swedish data protection authority (IMY) fined a company that used body cameras in connection with public transport ticket controls because it found that the company did not meet the requirements for information under Article 13 of the GDPR. This case was then appealed and the Court of Appeal vacated the fine as it held that Article 13 of the GDPR did not apply, but Article 14 did.
