Coordinated Supervision Committee (CSC)

The Coordinated Supervision Committee (CSC) is a group comprised of national data protection supervisory authorities and the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS). The CSC was established within the framework of the European Data Protection Board (“the Board”) to ensure coordinated supervision of certain large scale IT systems and EU bodies, offices and agencies.

The processing of personal data in EU large scale IT systems and agencies in which Ireland participates, currently fall under the scope of the CSC coordinating activities as follows:

Internal Market Information (IMI) System

The IMI is a secure, multilingual online tool, developed by the European Commission in close collaboration with the Member States, which facilitates the exchange of information between public authorities involved in the practical implementation of EU law and helps authorities to fulfil their cross-border administrative cooperation obligations in multiple Single Market policy areas.

National IMI

The CSC ensures coordination in the supervision of the processing of personal data in the Internal Market Information System (IMI) in accordance with Article 21 of Regulation (EU) No 1024/2012 (as modified by Article 38 of Regulation (EU) No 2018/1724).

The national data protection authorities ('DPAs') of the 27 EU Member States, including Ireland, participate in the activities of the CSC in relation to IMI.

European Union Agency for Criminal Justice Cooperation (Eurojust)

Eurojust is a hub based in The Hague, The Netherlands, comprised of a central body of lawyers, magistrates, judges and other legal experts seconded from Member States to facilitate the investigation and prosecution of crimes which have a cross-border dimension, aiding co-operation between judicial and prosecuting authorities.

Eurojust website

The CSC ensures coordination in the supervision of the processing of operational personal data in the context of cooperation between the national members within Eurojust in accordance with Article 42 (2) of Regulation (EU) No 1727/2018.

The national data protection authorities ('DPAs') of the 27 EU Member States, including Ireland, participate in the activities of the CSC in relation to Eurojust.
