What is RoPA and how do I maintain one?

Are you grappling with the complexities of compliance, especially when it comes to the meticulous documentation of processing activities? Then keep reading, in this article we outline The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Article 30, and show how ComplyKEY RoPA is a great solution for maintaining Records of Processing Activities (RoPA).

Demystifying GDPR Article 30: The Essence of RoPA

GDPR Article 30 mandates that controllers and processors maintain comprehensive records of processing activities under their responsibility. These records should encompass essential details, such as:

  • Controller Information: Including name, contact details, and data protection officer details.
  • Processing Purposes: Clearly defining the purposes of the data processing.
  • Data Categories: Describing the categories of data subjects and personal data.
  • Recipient Details: Identifying recipients, including those in third countries or international organizations.
  • Data Transfers: Documenting transfers to third countries and the safeguards in place.
  • Data Erasure Timeframes: Envisaging time limits for erasure of different data categories.
  • Security Measures: Providing a general description of technical and organizational security measures.

These records must be in writing, including electronic form, and made available to the supervisory authority upon request. However, the obligations may not apply to smaller enterprises unless specific criteria are met.
