On 15 December 2016 the Article 29 Working Party (“WP29”) released draft guidelines and FAQs on key provisions in the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). The guidelines cover the right to data portability, data protection officers and the lead supervisory authority. The WP29 has invited comments from stakeholders on the draft guidelines and FAQs. The deadline for comments is January 31, 2017. Although this invitation for comment is directed at the new guidance, some members of the WP29 have expressed interest in comments on additional issues for the WP29 2017 work plan, for which guidance has not been issued.
