Europrivacy GDPR Certification
GDPR compliance: Enhance your reputation, reduce risks, and gain market access.
Europrivacy – A GDPR by Design Certification
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a comprehensive data protection and privacy regulation. It incorporates over 70 references to certification as a means to showcase compliance with European regulations in processing activities. This extends to the selection of data processors with an adequate level of data protection and the authorization of cross-border data transfers.
Europrivacy criteria have been approved by the European Data Protection Board to serve as European Data Protection Seal to assess and certify the compliance of all sorts of data processing under the GDPR and complementary national data protection regulations.
Failure to adhere to GDPR standards entails significant legal and financial repercussions, with these risks remaining latent until a company incurs fines, which can amount to up to 4% of its global turnover. Obtaining a GDPR certification mitigates these legal and financial risks, presenting an opportunity for substantial cost savings. Europrivacy certificates, specifically, underscore your company’s dedication to safeguarding personal data. They position your organization as a trustworthy service provider for customers and a dependable data processor for business partners.

Reliable Certification Process
The Europrivacy certification scheme, conceived under the European research programme funded by the European Commission, has been strategically developed to address the specific requirements outlined in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Positioned as the official certification scheme under Article 42 of the GDPR, it has been collaboratively shaped in consultation with national supervisory authorities. The European Centre for Certification and Privacy (ECCP) in Luxembourg, along with its International Board of Experts in data protection, manages and consistently updates the Europrivacy certification scheme.
Europrivacy serves as a valuable tool for evaluating and certifying the conformity of data processing activities with the GDPR, in addition to complementary national and domain-specific obligations. Its applicability extends to a diverse range of data processing scenarios, including emerging technologies. The scheme facilitates the documentation, assessment, and certification of conformity, allowing organizations to prioritize data processing activities and progressively certify them as they meet readiness criteria. Aligned with ISO standards, Europrivacy complements management system certifications like ISO/IEC 27001 or 27701. It distinguishes itself as the first scheme proposed by a European national data protection authority and officially endorsed by the EU as the European certification scheme under Article 42 of the GDPR.
The Europrivacy certification is conferred by qualified Certification Bodies possessing the requisite legal and technical expertise. Adhering to the principles of ISO/IEC 17065 and 17021-1, the certification process encompasses various methodologies such as documentation review, sampling analysis, technical tests, inspections, and interviews. The issued certificates are publicly accessible and verifiable through the Europrivacy Registry, which incorporates Blockchain technology to enhance security and authentication.
