The initial decisions about the outcome of investigations carried out by the National Commission for Data Protection (CNPD) pursuant to article 41 of the law of 1 August 2018[1], were published on the CNPD website on 7 June 2021.

Among the 18 decisions published, 6 decisions stipulated fines and/or corrective measures for companies investigated for failing to comply with the provisions of the GDPR regarding video surveillance and geolocation, following the on-site investigations carried out by the CNPD.

The other decisions were taken within the framework of the thematic audit campaign launched by the CNPD on the role of the Data Protection Officer. The decisions stipulate corrective measures and/or administrative fines for any breaches that were revealed, or the closure of the investigation if it was found that there had been no breaches.
