As per May 25, 2018, the current Belgian Privacy Commission will transform into the Data Protection Authority (Gegevensbeschermingsautoriteit, GBA). On February 12, 2018, the chamber of representatives published a notice on the Official Gazette with regard to the composition of the GBA, which will consist of a board of directors, a knowledge center, and a dispute chamber. The notice calls on candidates for the mandate of the DPA. The current president of the privacy commission (Willem Debeuckelare) has declared that he does not wish to be a candidate.
