As from 25 May 2018, the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) has been set to succeed the Article 29 Working Party, as established in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR provides that the EDPB will be in charge of ensuring the consistency of its application throughout the Union. The new legal framework outlines that the EDPS provides the secretariat for the EDPB. The secretariat will offer administrative and logistic support for the EDPB as well as perform analytical work to contribute to the EDPB’s tasks.
