Webinar: 'Towards a GDPR Code of Conduct for Health Research: where are we today?'
On 25 May 2019, exactly one year after the GDPR came into force with direct effect in the EC Member States, the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) will publish its final Guidelines 1/2019 on Codes of Conduct and Monitoring Bodies under Regulation 2016/679. The possibility of drawing up a Code of Conduct is specified in Article 40 of the GDPR. The Guidelines will specify the how, including how to seek approval and monitor the code’s adherence. The GDPR Code of Conduct for Health Research initiative is aiming for a sector specific code in the area of health. It shall help to demonstrate GDPR compliance and to navigate across the various national country derogations that apply for health research related data transfer.
The aim of the webinar is to present an update on the GDPR Code of Conduct for Health Research development: What has been achieved so far? What obstacles were encountered? What about the country derogations? Why is the timeline a moving target? When to expect public consultation? When will the code be finalized and operational?
