EDPB Document on Coordinated Enforcement Framework under GDPR

The Coordinated Enforcement Framework (CEF) provides a structure for coordinating recurring annual activities by EDPB Supervisory Authorities. The annual coordinated action focuses on a pre-defined topic and allows Supervisory Authorities to pursue this topic using the agreed-upon methodology. The CEF itself provides the procedural outline within which the coordinated action can take place.

The objective of the CEF is to facilitate joint actions in a flexible but coordinated manner, ranging from joint awareness raising and information gathering to enforcement sweeps and joint investigations. The purpose of recurring annual coordinated actions is to promote compliance, to empower data subjects to exercise their rights, to raise awareness, and/or to increase the knowledge of SAs.
