(EN) Article 38 describes the specifics of the position of the Data Protection Officer (DPO). In particular, the emphasis is on the fact that DPO performs its work independently, while the responsibility for their timely and quality performance lies partly with the company itself (the controller or processor). Therefore, the text emphasizes that the company provides DPO with the necessary resources and access on the one hand, and is responsible for the independence of the DPO, not having the right to give them any instructions on the other.

In order to provide DPO with support, the company is recommended to ensure the following:

  • DPO is actively and timely involved in all data protection issues; DPO is invited to participate regularly in senior and middle management meetings when decisions with data protection implications are being made

(97) Hvis behandling foretages af en offentlig myndighed, bortset fra domstole eller andre uafhængige judicielle myndigheder, når de handler i deres egenskab af domstol, hvis behandling i den private sektor foretages af en dataansvarlig, hvis kerneaktiviteter består i behandlingsaktiviteter, som kræver regelmæssig og systematisk overvågning af de registrerede i stort omfang, eller hvis den dataansvarliges eller databehandlerens kerneaktiviteter består af behandling i stort omfang af særlige kategorier af oplysninger og oplysninger vedrørende straffedomme og lovovertrædelser, bør en person med ekspertise i databeskyttelsesret og -praksis bistå den dataansvarlige eller databehandleren med at overvåge den interne overholdelse af denne forordning. I den private sektor vedrører en dataansvarligs kerneaktiviteter vedkommendes hovedaktiviteter og ikke behandling af personoplysninger som biaktivitet. Den nødvendige ekspertise bør navnlig fastlægges i henhold til de databehandlingsaktiviteter, der foretages, og den beskyttelse de personoplysninger, som den dataansvarlige eller databehandleren behandler, kræver. Sådanne databeskyttelsesrådgivere bør, uanset om de er ansat hos den dataansvarlige eller ej, være i stand til at udøve deres hverv på uafhængig vis.

(97) Where the processing is carried out by a public authority, except for courts or independent judicial authorities when acting in their judicial capacity, where, in the private sector, processing is carried out by a controller whose core activities consist of processing operations that require regular and systematic monitoring of the data subjects on a large scale, or where the core activities of the controller or the processor consist of processing on a large scale of special categories of personal data and data relating to criminal convictions and offences, a person with expert knowledge of data protection law and practices should assist the controller or processor to monitor internal compliance with this Regulation. In the private sector, the core activities of a controller relate to its primary activities and do not relate to the processing of personal data as ancillary activities. The necessary level of expert knowledge should be determined in particular according to the data processing operations carried out and the protection required for the personal data processed by the controller or the processor. Such data protection officers, whether or not they are an employee of the controller, should be in a position to perform their duties and tasks in an independent manner.
