In a post on its new website, the European Data Protection Board, which was formerly the Article 29 Working Party — a collection of the EU's data protection authorities — has offered an update to its cross-border cooperation and consistency procedures. During its second plenary meeting earlier this month, "Most [DPAs] reported a substantial increase in complaints received," and currently there are about 100 cross-border cases under investigation. EDPB Chair Andrea Jelinek said, "we should only expect the first results of the new procedures to deal with cross-border cases in a few months from now," adding, "The GDPR does not offer a quick fix in case of a complaint but we are confident the procedures detailing the way in which the authorities work together are robust and efficient."
