According to Article 12(7) of the European General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 there shall be standard icons for making data collection more transparent for data subjects (end users):
- The information to be provided to data subjects pursuant to Articles 13 and 14 may be provided in combination with standardised icons in order to give in an easily visible, intelligible and clearly legible manner a meaningful overview of the intended processing. Where the icons are presented electronically they shall be machine-readable.
With 12(8) the EC is empowered to make the decision making, and with Article 7 (1r) The (new) European Data Protection Board is asked to provide input in this process. The EC must present the delegated act to EP and Council and only if they do not object within 3 month this can go into effect.
As the EDP Board is not yet formed and the (old) Article 29 Working Party currently seems not to work on the icon sets, I wonder if anybody already knows about work in progress or a roadmap. Will the EC start this process, if so what feed to follow to be informed about it?
