(166) In order to fulfil the objectives of this Regulation, namely to protect the fundamental rights and freedoms of natural persons and in particular their right to the protection of personal data and to ensure the free movement of personal data within the Union, the power to adopt acts in accordance with Article 290 TFEU should be delegated to the Commission. In particular, delegated acts should be adopted in respect of criteria and requirements for certification mechanisms, information to be presented by standardised icons and procedures for providing such icons. It is of particular importance that the Commission carry out appropriate consultations during its preparatory work, including at expert level. The Commission, when preparing and drawing-up delegated acts, should ensure a simultaneous, timely and appropriate transmission of relevant documents to the European Parliament and to the Council

There is no recital in the Directive related to article 92.

The GDPR

Let’s remember that pursuant to Articles 43 (8) and (12), paragraph 8, the Commission is empowered to adopt delegated acts:

- either for the purpose of specifying the criteria and requirements for the certification of the data protection mechanisms;

- or for the purpose of defining the information that must be provided to the data subjects by the use of icons, as well as the standardization of these procedures.

Article 92 sets the conditions relative to the power of the Commission to adopt delegated acts, within the above provisions. The second paragraph begins by clarifying that the delegation of power shall be conferred on the Commission for an indeterminate period of time after the entry into force of the Regulation (paragraph 2). In contrast, the European Parliament or the Council may at any time revoke the power of the Commission, without prejudice to the validity of delegated acts already in force. In this case, the revocation takes effect the day following the publication in the Official Journal of the European Union of the decision to revoke, or at a later date specified in the revocation decision.

Paragraph 4 requires the Commission to notify without delay to the European Parliament and the Council each delegated Act it adopts.

The delegated acts adopted by the Commission shall enter into force only if no objection has been expressed by either the European Parliament or the Council. That period shall be extended by three months at the initiation of the European Parliament or of the Council.

The delegated acts shall also enter into force before the expiry of a period of two months if the European Parliament and the Council have both informed the Commission that they will not object (paragraph 5).
