EDPB has started working on guidelines on data processing during the COVID-19 pandemic

The European Data Protection Board, during its 20th plenary meeting which was held on 7 April 2020, granted its expert subgroups specific mandates to develop guidance on data processing aspects relevant to the rights and freedoms of data subjects in connection with the COVID-19 outbreak.

Works have begun on guidelines for geolocation and other tracking tools in the context of the COVID-19 outbreak and guidelines for processing health data for research purposes also in the context of coronavirus.

EROD also decided to postpone works on guidelines for teleworking tools and practices in the context of the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
