The Belgian Privacy Commission has released a Recommendation on the requirements organizations face to appoint a data protection officer under the General Data Protection Regulation, Hunton & Williams' Privacy & Information Security Law Blog reports. The Belgian DPA’s Recommendation looks to offer guidance in response to the questions the agency has received regarding the functions of the DPO, specifically its compatibility with other positions within an organization. The Recommendation also outlines a DPO’s tasks, including monitoring GDPR compliance, assisting with data protection impact assessments, cooperating with data protection authorities, and assisting with internal recordkeeping obligations. The Belgian DPA also states companies should document the process made when appointing their DPOs, as well as the person they choose to inhabit the role.
