For almost a decade, SCOPE Europe’s primary SRIW gathered essential experience in handling Codes of Conduct and acting as independent Monitoring Body, having successfully implemented and enforced Codes of Conduct in the field of data protection (pre-GDPR). SCOPE Europe was established to transfer this knowledge to the European level: Lessons learned whilst actively performing the role of a Monitoring Body as well as valuable discussions with Supervisory Authorities, regulators and key stakeholders helped us in our ambition to prepare ourselves in addressing the requirements of GDPR, for instance by adapting our own internal rules of procedures and processes to further enhance our independence, expertise and established procedures.
SCOPE Europe is appointed Monitoring Body of various codes of conduct developed under GDPR, worth mentioning the EU Cloud CoC, an approved transnational code of conduct pursuant Art. 40 GDPR, for which SCOPE Europe has received official accredition pursuant Art. 41 GDPR in May 2021.
We look forward to collaborating with more initiatives and significantly contribute to the appropriate application of GDPR, continuously fostering a trustworthy environment for the digital industry in Europe and beyond.
