GPA issues call for Reference Panel members

The Global Privacy Assembly (GPA) — formerly the International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners — is calling for nominations from organisations interested in participating in the GPA Reference Panel.

Established in 1979, the GPA is an international forum of more than 130 data protection and privacy authorities from across the globe.

The GPA Reference Panel will be a contact group comprising a variety of external stakeholders “which the GPA is seeking to establish in order to provide expert knowledge and practical expertise on data protection and privacy, as well as on data protection related issues and developments in information technology”, according to a post on the GPA website.

Suitable participants might include civil society organisations, academic institutions, think tanks, non-privacy supervisory authorities, public authorities such as law enforcement and private sector representatives.

The deadline for submitting nominations is Friday, 20 March 2020. The nomination form can be downloaded here.
