The GDPR

In the final version of the Regulation, a new provision was included in Article 98 relating to the review of other legal instruments on the data protection occurring in the Union.

Pursuant to this new provision, the Commission is granted the power to submit legislative amendments to any other legal instruments under EU law on data protection. The goal is to ensure, by means of amendments, the consistency of the protection of individuals with respect to the personal data processing, particularly with regard to the protection of individuals with respect to the processing carried out by the European institutions (see Regulation (EC) No. 45/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2000 on the protection of natural persons with respect to the treatment of the personal data by the Community institutions and bodies) and the free movement of such data).
