AEPD (Spain)

The Agencia Española de Protección de Datos (abbreviated "AEPD") is the national Data Protection Authority for Spain. The AEPD is an independent public body in charge of enforcing the GDPR in Spain. Its head office is in Madrid. The requirement to have a data protection authority stems from Article 44 of the Spanish Data Protection Act, which is the national act developing the GDPR in Spain. The AEPD is affiliated to the Spanish Government via the Ministry of Justice.
