New era in the data protection supervision of Europol
Under the new Europol Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/794), the EDPS will take over responsibility from the JSB for the data protection supervision of Europol as from the beginning of May.
The JSB, after long and honourable service to data protection in the EU, will pass its role to the EDPS, an EU institution and the supervisory authority for the EU institutions and bodies.
The EDPS will provide advice on data protection issues to Europol and carry out inspections as well as investigating complaints from individuals.
