Commission proposal

In particular, the controller should ensure and be obliged to demonstrate the compliance of each processing operation with this Regulation.

EDRi’s Proposed amendment

(60) Comprehensive responsibility and liability of the controller for any processing of personal data carried out by the controller or on the controller’s behalf should be established in order to ensure accountability. In particular, the controller should ensure and be obliged to demonstrate the compliance of each processing operation with this Regulation. Otherwise unnecessary data processing may not be justified on the basis of the need to respect this obligation.

Justification
The concept of accountability should be mentioned explicitly.

It must be rigorously avoided that any measure in this Regulation leads to additional data processing.
