Features of the Register of Processing Tools

đź“• The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has an impact on all companies using users Data. It actually strenghtens the existing obligations such as the information obligation on personal data of users.

In addition, the Article 30 of GDPR state that it is mandatory to keep a Register of Processing for both Data Controller and controller's representatives :

  • “Each controller and, where applicable, the controller’s representative, shall maintain a record of processing activities under its responsibility.”;
  • “ Each processor and, where applicable, the processor's representative shall maintain a record of all categories of processing activities carried out on behalf of a controller”.

They need to keep records and make them available anytime to the Data Protection Authority if whenever they ask it.

This implies several steps :

  • Mapping the personal data processing
  • Mapping the controller representatives and receivers
  • Mapping out of UE data transfer
  • Check the integrity and security of data
  • Determine clear and legitimate purposes for processing
  • Establish rules for removal of database
  • Establish a register of processing
