Case 274/2021/TE - Opened on Friday | 12 February 2021 - Institution concerned European Data Protection Supervisor
The complainant sought public access from the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) to documents related to a report concerning the Schrems II ruling on international data transfers. The EDPS refused access, invoking an exception under the EU's rules on public access to documents, and arguing that disclosing the documents risked undermining an ongoing decision-making procedure.
The Ombudsman opened an inquiry and sought to inspect the documents in question.
