The GDPR’s cooperation and consistency mechanism will now be put to a test at the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) which is already dealing with more than 20 cross-border cases. DPAs will try to reach the goal of consistent application of the GDPR by issuing opinions and by dispute resolution.
EDOB will issue binding decisions on cases brought to it but it can also proactively examine issues. While it can take decisions by a two-thirds majority, a procedure needs to be found for situations when a national authority prefers not to accept EDPB’s decision.
