In spring 2016, the entry into force of the GDPR, which will be applicable from late May 2018, required EuroPriSe to initiate an update to its certification criteria. The major objective of this update was to incorporate the new legal provisions that are introduced by the regulation into the existing certification catalogue. Today, the final outcome of the months-long update process is published.
”The new, GDPR-ready version of our criteria catalogue may be used for future (re)certification projects from January 2017,” says Sebastian Meissner, Head of the EuroPriSe Certification Authority. “Hereby, EuroPriSe’s existing and future clients are given the opportunity to prove from day 1 of the GDPR’s applicability that their products and services comply with the new legislative framework”.
The new criteria catalogue is publicly available at https://www.european-privacy-seal.eu/EPSen/Criteria.
EuroPriSe sent out a press release regarding the new criteria catalogue which is available here.
