The French Data Protection Authority (CNIL) has adopted new registration procedures in relation to the processing of personal  data for monitoring and recording employee telephone calls in the workplace. Businesses that comply with the requirements set out in CNIL’s new “Simplified Norm” can register with the CNIL by filing a simplified self-declaration of compliance. This simplified registration procedure means that those compliant businesses will not need to provide the same level of detailed information about their processing activities as requested in the standard registration form.
