Registration of Databases

Since the GDPR came into force, prior registration is no longer a legal requirement. Nevertheless, the Data Protection Authority’s register on data applications will remain in place as a publicly available archive until the end of 2019.

However, the DSG lays down in sections 7 and 8 requirements for the prior of the DSB in the context of data processing:

  • In the general interest of the public of archiving, scientific or historical research, or statistics
  • Of data subjects regarding notification or interview of that data subject
