100 cross-border cases in the Internal Market Information System (IMI) under investigation: consistency is paramount

After the second plenary meeting of the European Data Protection Board, which took place on 4 and 5 July 2018, a substantial increase in the number of complaints received by Supervisory authorities has emerged.  In fact, at present there are approximately 100 cross-border cases in the Internal Market Information System (IMI) under investigation.
The first results of the new procedures to deal with cross-border cases will come out in a couple of months. Effective communications between the Supervisory authorities, timely resolution of the cases, and consistency in the decisions taken across Europe are paramount elements to ensure coherent implementation of the GDPR, foster the trust of digital consumers (data subjects)and provide businesses with a predictable enforcement system.
