Following the 458 on-site inspections it carried out in 2012, the French data protection authority’s (CNIL) annual program for 2013 was published this week. Bird & Bird reports that the CNIL’s objective is to achieve approximately 400 inspections, with one-quarter related to CCTV systems and one-third reserved for the investigation of complaints received. “With respect to the CNIL 2013 program, there is a persistent interest from the CNIL for CCTV systems,” explained Bird & Bird's Gabriel Voisin. “However, operators will be pleased to see that the French data protection authority seems to have no appetite for enforcing the new cookie requirements.”
