Welcome from the EDPS

January 2022 marked the ten year anniversary of the emergence of the first draft of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). A decade later, and almost four years after the GDPR’s entry into application, the EDPS believes it is time to reflect on the functioning and efficiency of the Regulation. This is why, on 16 and 17 June 2022, the EDPS will host a conference in Brussels bringing together global stakeholders from the digital regulatory sphere to reflect on and discuss current approaches to enforcement models.
