Effective procedure – competence of the SA
Article(s) involved (national, EU, or other):
The absence of deadline regarding whether a SA considers itself competent delays the procedure (by contrast, Article 56(3) GDPR provides that when a case is transferred by an SA to a LSA, the latter has 3 weeks to confirm whether it will handle the case).
The text should provide such a deadline. The decision whether or not a SA considers itself competent should be subject to a deadline, i.e. within 3 months from the day of receipt of the complaint.
