On 24 June 2020, the European Commission published its first evaluation of the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") since its entry into application on 25 May 2018.

The Report focuses on international transfers and the manner in which the cooperation and consistency mechanisms provided for under the GDPR are applied. It also refers to several issues surrounding the GDPR's implementation amongst which are the challenges faced by small and medium-sized enterprises ("SMEs") as to their compliance with the GDPR or the way specific technologies such as artificial intelligence, blockchain or the Internet of Things implement GDPR principles.
