VIDEO: Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/392 – Data protection and the CO2 data transfer

von Jan

The European Union is striving to reduce traffic-related CO2 emissions. Accordingly, it has issued limit values & a new EU implementing regulation for permissible CO2 emissions for vehicles – the EU 2021/392 implementing regulation.

On the monitoring and reporting of data on CO2 emissions from passenger cars and light commercial vehicles.

One of the special challenges of a data protection officer is to be allowed to deal with questions directly from practice that at first glance appear to be unrelated to the subject. The Implementing Regulation EU 2021/392 falls into this area in any case. In this case, the EU wants to reduce traffic-related CO2 emissions within the European Union. The regulation deals with the transmission and evaluation of CO2 emission values and consumption values from regular operation. Consumption values from vehicles are linked here with the VIN (vehicle identification number) – the result: the actual CO2 emission values are linked with the owner and thus personal data according to the Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO).
