Guidelines 09/2020 on relevant and reasoned objection under Regulation 2016/679

One of the key elements signifying the absence of consensus between the Lead Supervisory Authority and the Concerned Supervisory Authorities, is the concept of “relevant and reasoned objection”. This document seeks to provide guidance with respect to this concept and aims at establishing a common understanding of the notion of the terms “relevant and reasoned”, including what should be considered when assessing whether an objection “clearly demonstrates the significance of the risks posed by the draft decision” (Article 4(24) GDPR).
