The French Data Protection Authority (CNIL) has issued a new Single Authorisation Decision No. 46 (AU-46) that relates to the data processing activities of organizations with respect to offences, convictions and security measures with a view to the preparation, exercise and follow-up regarding disciplinary or court actions, and the enforcement of those actions. This also includes processing solely for the purpose of establishing the existence of or for preventing offences. Blanket authorisations like this allow for a simplified authorization procedure by way of self-certification.
