EU: Data Protection Authorities Initiate Modernisation of Convention 108

On April 27-28, 2017 the European Conference of Data Protection Authorities issued a resolution on the modernisation of the Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data (Convention 108).

Although the procedure for the modernisation of Convention 108 was intiated in 2011, it has since been delayed. At their spring conference, European data protection authorities outlined that the outstanding issues concern the voting rights of the European Union, national security exceptions, transborder data flows and the question of entry into force of the modernised provisions.
