Under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) the role of the Data Protection Officer has to include the following tasks:

  1. to inform and advise the controller or the processor and the employees who carry out processing of their obligations under GDPR;
  2. to monitor compliance with this Regulation, with other data protection provisions and with the policies of the controller or processor in relation to the protection of personal data, including the assignment of responsibilities, awareness-raising and training of staff involved in processing operations, and the related audits;
  3. to provide advice where requested as regards the data protection impact assessment and monitor its performance pursuant to Article 35;
  4. to cooperate with the Information Commissioners Office;
  5. to act as the contact point for the Information Commissioners Office on issues relating to processing, including the prior consultation referred to in Article 36, and to consult, where appropriate, with regard to any other matter.

The regulations also stipulate that:

The necessary level of expert knowledge should be determined in particular according to the data processing operations carried out and the protection required for the personal data processed by the controller or the processor. Such data protection officers, whether or not they are an employee of the controller, should be in a position to perform their duties and tasks in an independent manner.
