The EDPS is an independent supervisory authority devoted to protecting personal data and privacy and promoting good practice in the EU institutions and bodies. It does so by:
 
  • monitoring the EU administration's processing of personal data;
  • advising on policies and legislation that affect privacy; and
  • co-operating with similar authorities to ensure consistent data protection.
