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.
