Ombudsman finds EU monitoring over Irish data ‘appropriate’
The EU Ombudsman has concluded an investigation into the European Commission’s monitoring of the application of data protection rules in Ireland.
Ombudsman Emily O’Reilly found that the Commission’s practice of obtaining a bi-monthly overview from the Irish Data Protection Commission on its handling of “big tech” cases, including cross border cases, is appropriate and in line with good administration.
The Ombudsman launched the investigation in February following a complaint to her office from Dr Johnny Ryan, a senior fellow at the Irish Council for Civil Liberties (ICCL).
