GDPR Data Protection Supervisory Authority Listing

GDPR Data Protection Supervisory Authority Listing

The DPA (Data Protection Authority) is the agency within each European Union country that is responsible for GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) assistance and enforcement.

What’s the difference between a Data Protection Authority and a Supervisory Authority?

A Data Protection Authority handles reports of data breaches, mediates issues like data subject access requests and works to educate their country about best practices in keeping digital data secure. The Supervisory Authority is which particular Data Protection Authority has jurisdiction over a particular matter.

Because online services are so intertwined it’s quite common to have situations where it’s a German citizens data that is being held by a French company.

Who should have jurisdiction over the matter? Should it be France’s Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés (CNIL) or the German Die Bundesbeauftragte für den Datenschutz und die Informationsfreiheit?

The answer: it’s complicated (and in truth would rely upon some factors not presented in this extremely simplified example). However, whichever agency ends up with jurisdiction would be the DPA that was acting as the Supervisory Authority for the matter.

Why you need every DPA’s Contact Information

As either a data controller or data processor, you will be responding to requests for data from users’ of your system. Per Article 12 of the GDPR you may need to inform them of which supervisory authority they can escalate to if you exceed the initial 30 day grace period for a request.

Additionally, at the time of consent (when the user says: ‘I do’ to you collecting their personal information) you need to inform them their right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. This and other consent requirements are spelled out in Article 13.
