Admissibility – Formal requirements: proof that the not-for-profit entity is certified
Article(s) involved (national, EU, or other): Article 80(1) GDPR
Some SAs request additional documentation with regard to the representation of data subjects by not-for-profit organisations under Art. 80(1) GDPR. Not only a representation agreement is requested to be filed in the country’s official language but also a proof that the specific organisation is allowed to represent data subjects.
The procedural provision should mention the minimum formal conditions for the representation of data subjects. When met, the complaint should always be deemed admissible.
Concept 2 would ensure that the national law of the filing SA is relevant for any rules on the admissability of the law and other SAs may not review the admissability
