The Privacy Commission
The Commission for the Protection of Privacy (CPP), better known as the Privacy Commission, is an independent body ensuring the protection of privacy when personal data are processed.
The Privacy Commission was established by the Belgian Federal House of Representatives with the Act of 8 December 1992 (the so-called "Privacy Act").
Sector committees have been established within the Privacy Commission. The committees being composed of Privacy Commission members and experts familiar with the sector in question, they ensure that privacy is protected when personal data are processed in a specific sector.
The Privacy Commission organises events related to its activities.
As a data protection authority the Privacy Commission is not alone in Europe: there is a counterpart in every EU member state, which the Privacy Commission closely cooperates with in order to come to harmonised European positions and learn from colleagues' experiences. At a global scale, too, the Privacy Commission has a few counterparts and maintains contacts, both in working groups and during conferences.
