CEDPO
The Confederation of European Data Protection Organisations

CEDPO aims to

  • promote the role of the Data Protection Officer,
  • provide advice on balanced, practicable and effective data protection, and to
  • contribute to a better harmonisation of data protection law and practices in the EU/EEA.

 

CEDPO members are convinced that the Data Protection Officer (DPO) plays a central role in enabling a balanced, practicable and effective protection of personal data. By gathering  organisations from different EEA Member States under one Confederation, we intend to contribute to a better harmonisation of rules and practices through the exchange of practical know-how and experiences.

In February 2014, ADPO (The Association of Data Protection Officers) of Ireland, ARGE DATEN of Austria, and SABI (Stowarzyszenie Inspektorów Ochrony Danych) of Poland joined CEDPO. 

The latest to additions to CEDPO took place between 2018-2020 when ASSO DPO (Associazione Data Protection Officer) of Italy, AEPD (Associação de Encarregados de Proteção de Dados) of Portugal and ASCPD (Asociatia Specialistilor in Confidentialitate si Protectia Datelor) of Romania became member associations.
