The European Data Protection Board (EDPB) has published its 2022 Annual Activity Report. Now in its fifth edition and the last under the chair of Andrea Jelinek, the report summarises the work carried out by the EDPB over the year. Highlights include the EDPB's work on several taskforces involving cross-border transfers, which led to more consistent enforcement around issues such as Google Analytics and cookie banners. The EDPB also launched its first Coordinated Enforcement Framework action over the use of Cloud-based services and a Support Pool of Experts to help data protection authorities (DPAs) increase capacity.
Andrea Jelinek said: “This Report clearly demonstrates how much work is done by the EDPB in the span of a year, in terms of issuing guidance, consistency documents, legal advice and adopting binding decisions. The role of the EDPB has changed substantially since 2018. We have become an influential player in the European Economic Area (EEA) digital economy. We do not just ensure that data protection law is applied consistently across the EEA, but help shape Europe’s digital future.”
