This book received its final edit at a crucial moment in the EU process of data protection reform with the finalisation of the trilogue negotiations between the European Parliament, Council and Commission, and the final stage of the arduous process of bringing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) into law. The Regulation contains a new governance model that combines powerful data protection authorities (DPAs), along with increased co-operation, a lead DPA and a European Data Protection Board with real functional and financial independence and the power to issue binding decisions. Attention with regard to DPA co-operation and enforcement should be given particularly to GDPR Chapters VI (supervisory authorities) and VII (co-operation and consistency), the latter defining amongst others the powers of the Board in its consistency monitoring capacity.
