The Commission for Personal Data Protection (CPDP) is ready to implement the Digital Single Market Directive, CPDP Chair Ventsislav Karadzhov said in response to a question from the Bulgarian News Agency on Friday. He was among the participants at an international conference on the challenges for multinational companies related to the General Data Protection Regulation, artificial intelligence and data management regulations. The forum was organized from the American Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Ingram Micro and with the support of Microsoft.

It is too early to tell whether CPDP will need to increase staffing or will be able to cope with its existing resources. Institutions such as the CPDP will have a close competence in the implementation of the Directive, with the Communications Regulation Commission as the lead body. The CPDP will supervise how the personal data of individuals are processed, explained Karadzhov.

However, there are questions of principle related to the regulation that have yet to be answered, such as regulating the subject of the refusal to process personal data and the range of services, the type of service and its price that the consumer receives and has to pay in such a situation.

"Individuals must have a real choice. You cannot have only two options - either you give consent (if you do not, you do not have the right to use the service), or you pay and use the service without advertising. We as regulators are trying to find a third way. This is the option to be able to access the information once for a certain period of time, in order to familiarize yourself, assess whether you need and then decide how to proceed," he said.
