The Polish Ministry on Digital Affairs has published a new draft personal data protection act that will accompany the entry of the General Data Protection Regulation in Poland. Dariusz Czuchaj writes for Privacy Tracker about the draft, which still needs to go through a public consultation. "The major changes mostly concern procedural aspects of proceedings carried out by the Polish data protection authority aimed at providing effective legal tools," Czuchaj writes. The DPA's new powers under the draft include the ability to perform an inspection without prior notice; get assistance from other authorities, such as the police; and interview employees of the entity being inspected as witnesses. There are also changes related to fines, data protection officers and children's data.
