Meeting in Brussels every other month, the WP29 has the task:

  • of helping to draft European standards by adopting recommendations;
  • of providing advice on the level of protection in countries outside of the EU;
  • of advising the European Commission on any project that has an impact on the protection of personal data and personal freedoms.

French speaking communities

For a decade now, the CNIL has been involved in promoting the “data protection” culture in French speaking countries. These efforts resulted in: the creation in 2007 of the Association Francophone des Autorités de Protection des Données Personnelles (the French Speaking Association of Bodies responsible for the Protection of Personal Data), in partnership with the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (International French Speaking Organisation), and in the adoption, by countries in the French speaking area such as Burkina Faso, Tunisia, Morocco, of legislation designed to protect privacy.
