Statutory Inquiries by the DPC

16th April 2019

Under the Data Protection Act 2018 (the 2018 Act), the DPC may conduct two different types
of statutory inquiry under Section 110 in order to establish whether an infringement of the GDPR or the 2018
Act has occurred. These are a complaint-based inquiry or an inquiry of the DPC’s “own volition”. 

Find the full document breaking down these inquiries and how they are processed below.
