Members can also be appointed to represent the Privacy Commission in working groups and international supervisory authorities.
Several sector committees are active within the Privacy Commission. Each of them is competent for a specific sector, and half of their members are also members of the Privacy Commission.
Such a variety of tasks requiring quite some studying and preparation, the Privacy Commission and the Sector Committees are assisted by an administration, the "secretariat".
The Privacy Commission draws up an annual activity report.
