The new DPC website is currently under construction. Our latest guidance in relation to GDPR, which comes into effect on 25th May, 2018, can be found at gdprandyou.ie and via pages on this website starting with "NEW" as per the navigation pane on the left. All other material on this site relates to the previous legislative regime under the Data Protection Acts 1988-2003 ("the Acts"). While the Acts may continue to apply in some circumstances, as of 25th May, 2018 the GDPR is the primary piece of legislation governing data protection.

Data Protection Commission

 Requests and Invitations 

 Request for Speaker

Thank you for your interest in having a speaker from the DPC contribute at your event. We try to cover as many events, in as many sectors and locations as we can in an effort to drive awareness of the application of data protection laws. However, demand can sometimes exceed our ability to supply speakers and we request that you download the attached document, complete the details and submit it to invitations@dataprotection.ie in order that we can assess the event you propose and to allow us respond in a timely manner indicating whether we are available.

Invitations to attend events

If you wish to invite the Commissioner or a member of staff to an event, you can simply email details of the event to invitations@dataprotection.ie.
