Access to Data Protection Remedies in EU Member States

Source: European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights

From Executive Summary:

This FRA report encompasses legal and social fieldwork research on European Union (EU) Member States’ remedies in the area of data protection. By offering an EU‐wide legal comparative analysis of data protection remedies, it gives an insight into the availability of remedies in each EU Member State. It also shows the challenges people encounter when seeking remedies following a data protection violation in a selected number of Member States.

This research aims to provide evidence on the use and application of data protection remedies in the EU Member States studied; to identify the main challenges faced by different actors; and to identify possible improvement in access to data protection remedies.

The report focuses on two fundamental rights guaranteed by the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union: the right to the protection of personal data (Article 8) and the right to an effective remedy before a tribunal (Article 47). These two fundamental rights should be analysed together because the right to an effective remedy cannot be dissociated from the need to effectively enforce all fundamental rights, including the protection of personal data.
