on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-003014/2019

Portugal published the national law implementing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)(1) on 8 August 2019(2).

The Commission is currently analysing the provisions of the national laws implementing the GDPR in the Member States to assess their compliance with the GDPR. The Commission has engaged in bilateral dialogues with national authorities to obtain clarifications. A bilateral dialogue with the Portuguese authorities will be scheduled in due time based on a prior assessment of the national law.

As recalled in its communication of 24 July 2019(3), the Commission ‘will use all the tools at its disposal, including infringement procedures, to ensure that Member States comply with the regulation and limit any fragmentation of the data protection framework’.
