EU Study on Privacy Seals

Trilateral Research undertook a study on privacy seal schemes in collaboration with Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) and Intrasoft International SA. The objectives of the study were to: identify and analyse the scientific and organisational success factors for an EU privacy certification scheme; assess the scope and rules of such a scheme, the roles of the various public and private stakeholders in its development; and to assess its relationship to existing legislation and the proposed General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The Study started in April 2013 and ended in July 2014.
