Through the publication in the Official State Gazette of Law 11/2023 (https://www.boe.es/boe/dias/2023/05/09/pdfs/BOE-A-2023-11022.pdf) a series of modifications were made to LO 3/2018, which incorporated certain articles relating to different issues, one of them was the possibility of establishing models for submitting claims to the Spanish Data Protection Agency. These models, as already advanced by the Control Authority itself, once the legislation was modified, would be published in the BOE and in the electronic headquarters of the Control Authority. With this regulatory modification, a Additional provision vigandthird chasm relative to the claims presentation models where it was established;

“The Spanish Data Protection Agency may establish models for submitting complaints to it in all areas in which it isThis has jurisdiction, which will be mandatory for interested parties regardless of whether it isandn obligated or not to interact electronically with public administrationswars.

  • Adoption of a Model by the European Data Protection Committee. On June 21, the European Union Control Authority adopted a complaint form template to facilitate the submission of complaints by individuals and the subsequent processing of complaints by data protection authorities (DPA) in cross-border cases. The template takes into account differences between national laws and practices. The Supervisory Authorities will use it on a voluntary basis and may adapt it to their respective national requirements. The template can be used both for cases where the complaint is filed by the person personally and for cases where the complaint is filed by another person, namely a legal representative, an entity acting on behalf of the person or an entity that acts on its own initiative. The European Data Protection Board developed an acknowledgment template which aims to provide the complainant with general information on the next steps after the submission of the complaint and highlights the right to an effective judicial remedy against a legally binding decision of a data protection authority.
