This chapter explores the complex relation between data protection and technical standards from a legal perspective. It first describes the relationship between the technical standards and the European data protection legal framework. The chapter also reflects on the development of privacy standards in complex technological environments, such as cloud computing and radio-frequency identification (RFID) applications. It finally examines the role of technical standards in the GDPR and analyses the specific provisions of the GDPR that relate to standardisation.
