The Article 29 Working Party (WP29) has announced that European  Data Protection Authorities have agreed upon a “common tool-box” to ensure a co-ordinated approach to the handling of complaints about search engines’ refusal to remove material from search results pursuant to the European Court’s recent right to be forgotten ruling. The tool-box comprises a network of dedicated individuals who will develop common case handling criteria. This network will result in a record of decisions taken by Data Protection Authorities in response to complaints and a “dashboard” to help similar cases to be easily identified.
