Improving the global level of privacy

The EuroPriSe vision

Initiated by the EU in 2007

The EU Commission launches the project and supports the development with 1.3 million euros in funding. At that time, it was still five years until the first draft of the GDPR. The aim was to create an EU-wide certification mark.

2014 Transition to EuroPriSe GmbH

The transition from a government certification body to a private company formed the basis for further development towards becoming the first company in Germany to offer accredited certification in accordance with Article 42 GDPR.

2022 a key milestone

In October 2022, the EuroPriSe criteria catalog is approved by the responsible supervisory authority. This makes EuroPriSe Cert GmbH, which is now based in Bonn, the first German company to achieve this step.

2023 Starting signal as pioneer

After EuroPriSe Cert became the first company in Germany to receive accreditation as a certification body for privacy certification in accordance with the GDPR in December 2023, the corresponding certificate was also issued by the DAkkS in January 2024.
