Designation of the DPO, Lecture 6

Accessibility of the DPO

According to Section 4 of the GDPR, the accessibility of the DPO should be effective. It is recommended that the DPO is located within the European Union, whether or not the controller or the processor is established in the European Union. However, in some situations where the controller or the processor has no establishment within the European Union, a DPO may be able to carry out his or her activities more effectively if located outside the EU.
