Spectra Technology Solutions has a registration at the Dutch DPA under the registration number 1310478

The Dutch DPA supervises the compliance with acts that regulate the use of personal data. This means that the Dutch DPA supervises the compliance with and application of the WBP; Personal Data Protection Act, the Wpolr; Data Protection [Police Files] Act and the Wgba; Municipal Database [Personal Records] Act.

The Dutch DPA must be notified of the use of personal data, unless an exemption applies.

The framework for performing this task has been set forth in the WBP and other related legislation. In this context, the legislator has implemented Article 28 of the European Privacy Directive 95/46/EC, which explicitly provides for the existence of such a supervisory authority and which also provides that this authority should fulfil its task completely independently. These tasks sometimes relate to obligations, but as a rule they relate to powers. Subject to the law and the opinion of the court, the Dutch DPA is entitled to take decisions itself regarding the execution of these powers. Other tasks, such as providing information and conducting studies of new developments, result from the general supervisory task. Also in view of its independence, the Dutch DPA has considerable free rein to work out the details of its tasks within the frameworks of the act and to set the necessary priorities and decide where to lay particular emphasis.

Tasks and powers of the Dutch DPA:
  • Making recommendations regarding legislation
  • Testing codes of conduct
  • Testing regulations
  • Notification and preliminary examination
  • Information
  • Exemption from the prohibition to process sensitive data
  • Making recommendations regarding permits for transfers to third countries
  • International affairs
  • Mediation and handling of complaints
  • Official investigation
  • Enforcement
  • International tasks
