The Europrivacy certification scheme has been developed through the European research programme (financed by the European Commission) to address the specific obligations of the GDPR and to serve as official certification scheme under article 42 of the GDPR. It has been developed in close collaboration with national supervisory authorities. It is managed and continuously updated by the European Centre for Certification and Privacy (ECCP) in Luxembourg and its International Board of Experts in data protection.
Europrivacy enables to assess and certify the conformity of data processing activities with the GDPR and complementary national and domain specific obligations. Applicable to all sorts of data processing, including emerging technologies, it enables to document, assess and certify their conformity with the GDPR and complementary national data protection regulations. It enables you to select priority data processing activities and progressively certify them once they are ready.
Europrivacy is closely aligned with ISO standards and complements management system certifications such as ISO/IEC 27001 or 27701. While the latter enable to certify the quality of an information management system, Europrivacy has been designed to certify the conformity of data processing activities with the GDPR and complementary national data protection regulations. It is the first scheme to have been proposed by a European national data protection authority to be officially endorsed by the EU as European certification scheme under the Art. 42 of the GDPR.
Europrivacy is delivered by qualified Certification Bodies gathering the adequate legal and technical expertise. The certification is aligned with the applicable ISO/IEC 17065 and 17021- 1 principles. It combines various methodologies, such as documentation review, sampling analysis, technical tests, inspections, and interviews. Delivered certificates can be verified and authenticated on the public Europrivacy Registry, enhanced with Blockchain technology.
