EU Privacy Chief Says First Round of Fines Likely by Year’s End

European Data Protection Supervisor Giovanni Buttarelli said.in a recent interview that he expects the first round of sanctions to happen anytime by the end of the year.

He also revealed that since the GDPR came into force, enforcers had been deluged by reports about violations and queries for clarification, with France and Italy alone reporting a 53 percent increase in complaints from last year.

However, Buttarelli says that the sanctions may not necessarily be fines, but decisions to admonish controllers, imposition of preliminary or temporary ban, or to give an ultimatum.
