Article 29 Working Party
The "Article 29 Working Party" is the short name of the Data Protection Working Party established by Article 29 of Directive 95/46/EC. It provided the European Commission with independent advice on data protection matters and helped in the development of a harmonised implementation of data protection rules in the EU Member States.
As of 25 May 2018 the Article 29 Working Party ceased to exist, and has been replaced by the European Data Protection Board (EDPB).
