Guidelines 01/2019 on Codes of Conduct and Monitoring Bodies under the GDPR
Section 8.2 Admissibility of a Code
49. If the draft code is not accepted on the basis of failing to meet the admissibility criteria set out above, the CompSA will write to the code owners outlining the basis for its decision. The process will come to an end on this basis and a new submission would be required to be made by the code owners. The CompSA will also issue a notification updating all concerned SAs of the position.
50. If the draft code is accepted by the CompSA on the basis of meeting the admissibility criteria, the CompSA should write to the code owners with confirmation that they will proceed to the next stage of the process and assess the draft code’s content. This will trigger the following informal cooperation procedure in respect of assessing the code for approval.
