DPIA - Data Protection Impact Assessment

The purpose of the Data Protection Impact Assessment is to help to identify, assess and manage the risks inherent in the processing of personal data.

When does the processing of personal data require an impact assessment?

The obligation to carry out an impact assessment arises from:
  • processing situations referred to in the General Data Protection Regulation
  • the inclusion of the processing operation in the list of data protection authorities
  • national legislation

Impact assessment in processing situations specified in the General Data Protection Regulation

An impact assessment must be performed when the planned processing is likely to pose a high risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals. In particular, an impact assessment must be carried out when:
  • the processing of personal data involves the use of new technologies
  • processing on a large scale criminal convictions, offences or specific categories of personal data, such as health data, ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs or sexual orientation
  • the personal characteristics of a person are assessed through automated processing, in a systematic and comprehensive manner, and the assessment leads to decisions that have legal effects or otherwise significantly affect the person
  • a public area is subject to systematic and extensive monitoring
