Procedural rights – informing the parties about the consistency mechanism
Article(s) involved (national, EU, or other):
Today, there is no obligation to formally notify the parties that a decision under the consistency mechanism has been submitted to the EDPB.
It should be made explicitly clear that the complainant should be informed in all cases that their complaint is sent to the EDPB.
They should be informed on the date, the timeline envisaged, and how their procedural rights will be respected in terms of right to be heard and file access.
Concept 8 includes this matter.
