Legal & Policy Committee

The Legal & Policy Committee supports the Executive Board in developing position papers, statements and other materials for the association’s political work. In addition to developing text modules on the role and added value of the data protection officer and providing long-term support for evaluation processes on the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the GDPR, the committee also prepares BvD statements on current legislative proposals at short notice.

Depending on the workload, the Legal & Policy Committee meets every 1 to 2 weeks – currently as a video conference due to the current situation.

If you have any suggestions or questions, or if you are interested in joining the committee, please contact the BvD office. In order to maintain the committee’s ability to act, the number of members is limited. The board of directors decides on admission to the committee.
