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.

There are three other independent regional data protection authorities in Spain that for the public sector: the Catalan Data Protection Authority (Autoritat Catalana de Protecció de Dades or Autoridad Catalana de Protección de Datos), the Basque Data Protection Authority (Datuak Babesteko Euskal Bulegoa or Agencia Vasca de Protección de Datos) and the Andalusian Data Protection Authority (Consejo de Transparencia y Protección de Datos de Andalucía).

Filing an Appeal[edit | edit source]

There are two options: 1) a "recurso de reposicion" to ask the AEPD to reconsider its decision or 2) an appeal directly with the Superior Administrative Court.

Recurso: You have one month to file. The procedure is free and by law the AEPD should decide within one month upon receipt of the recurso. In practice, it will take 6 to 7 months and in most cases will not lead to a change of the decision.

Appeal with the Superiour Administrative Court: You have two months to file the appeal by announcing your intention to appeal. The Court will then request the file from the AEPD. The Court will contact you to submit your arguments. It may take 7 to 9 months after you file the appeal to reach this step.
