Press releases

The EDPS Press service serves a two-fold objective: to follow media coverage on data protection, and to promote the EDPS' views and activities towards the press. 

The majority of the press releases relate to sectors' activities, in Consultation and Supervision, having a general public relevance. This would typically concerns legislative opinions or comments, reactions on meaningful developments in data protection (e.g. Court cases), as well as substantive issues in supervision, such as publication of compliance reports or guidelines on topical issues.

  •  Journalists who wish to receive press releases and invitations to press conferences can send a request to the press mailbox: press@edps.europa.eu  . 
    Requests for interviews or for clarifications of the EDPS position may also be made using this e-mail address.
