Form prior consultation

This form may be used for all prior consultations on processing of personal data with high residual risk, except for the processing operations carried out by controllers who must comply with Titles 2 and 3 of the Act of 30 July 2018 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data (judicial authorities, police services, general inspection of the federal police and local police, Financial Information Processing Unit, General Administration of Customs and Excise, the Passenger Information Unit, intelligence and security services, ...) or their processor.

From the moment that your file is in order and provided that the Data Protection Authority believes that the intended processing violates the GDPR , it will provide written advice to the controller within a maximum of 8 weeks. This period can be extended by 6 weeks, depending on the complexity of the intended processing. You can always be asked for additional information, if this seems necessary to put your file in order; which suspends the aforementioned terms.
