What is the Law Enforcement Directive?
The Data Protection (DP) Law Enforcement Directive, or ‘LED’, is a piece of EU legislation, parallel to the GDPR, which also has effect from May 2018. As suggested by its name, the LED deals with the processing of personal data by data controllers for ‘law enforcement purposes’ – which falls outside of the scope of the GDPR.
The Data Protection Commission (DPC) is set out in Part 5 of the Data Protection Act 2018 as the ‘independent supervisory authority’ for the LED. Complaints regarding contraventions of the LED regime can be made to the DPC.
It is important for organisations who have a law enforcement function to understand both GDPR and the Data Protection Directive for Law Enforcement, as well as the importance of the context of the processing of data as to which set of principles should apply.
The Law Enforcement Directive applies to cases where the data controller is a ‘competent authority, and the processing is done for ‘law enforcement purposes by a public or private body who fits the definition of ‘competent authority’.
This course examines the overlap and differences in content, context, and principles between the GDPR and the Directive, as well as considering the draft enabling legislation for the Directive in the context of CJEU rulings.
This seminar will benefit law enforcement authorities, data protection officers and data protection professionals in the private and public sector who are authorised to process and protect individuals’ personal data for the purposes of law enforcement.
This programme is accredited by the Institute of Commercial Management and certification is awarded upon successful completion of the programme and subsequent written assessment (approx 2000 words).
