Thematic guidelines

The EDPS issues guidelines on specific themes in order to provide guidance for EU institutions and bodies in certain fields relevant for them, such as recruitment, processing of disciplinary data and video surveillance.

These guidelines also facilitate the prior checking by the EDPS of processing operations in the EU agencies as they served as a reference document against which agencies could measure their current practices.
