On the basis of the documents, the court assumes the following facts and circumstances.<span class="linebreak1"> </span></p><div class="parablock"><p>By decision of 12 December 2019 (primary decision), the tax officer decided on the request for access to personal data on the basis of the GDPR.</p></div><span class="linebreak1"> </span><div class="parablock"><p>The plaintiff&#39;s representative objected to the primary decision by letter dated January 29, 2020.</p></div><span class="linebreak1"> </span><div class="parablock"><p>The plaintiff&#39;s authorized representative informed the tax officer in a letter dated 20 April 2020 that action was not taken expeditiously now that no decision has been taken on the notice of objection.

An appeal can be lodged against failure to take a decision on time (Article 6: 2, opening words and under b, in conjunction with Article 7: 1, first paragraph, opening words and under f, of the Awb). The notice of appeal can be submitted as soon as the administrative body fails to take a decision on time and two weeks have passed after a written notice of default has been received by the administrative body (Article 6:12, second paragraph, of the Awb). The administrative authority will make a decision on the objection within six weeks after the day on which the objection period has expired (Article 7:10, first paragraph, of the Awb). If the tax officer sets up an objection advisory committee, the decision period is twelve weeks after the day on which the objection period expired (Articles 7:10, first paragraph, and 7:13 of the Awb).<span class="linebreak1"> </span></p><p>3. The tax official submitted documents and a statement of defense by letter of 2 July 2020. The tax officer wrongly assumes that the appeal does not relate to a timely decision on the plaintiff&#39;s objection against the additional parking tax assessment. It is clear from the notice of appeal of June 4, 2020 that the authorized representative of the plaintiff is lodging an appeal against the late decision on the notice of objection of January 29, 2020 against the decision of December 12, 2019 with which it was decided on the request for access under the GDPR of December 1, 2019.<span class="linebreak1"> </span></p><div class="parablock"><p>Now that the tax officer has not fulfilled his obligation to submit the correct documents and a statement of defense focused on this appeal, the court takes it as established that the plaintiff&#39;s representative submitted a request for access under the GDPR by letter of 1 December 2019. has submitted.</p></div><span class="linebreak1"> </span><div class="parablock"><p>Pursuant to Article 12 (3) of the GDPR, the controller shall immediately and in any case within one month of receipt of the request pursuant to Articles 15 to 22, provide the data subject with information on the action taken on the request. Article 34 of the General Data Protection Regulation Implementation Act provides that a written decision on the request is considered a decision within the meaning of the General Administrative Law Act.</p></div><span class="linebreak1"> </span><div class="parablock"><p>Despite the lack of a legal remedy, the court considers the letter of 12 December 2019 to be a decision within the meaning of the Awb against which a timely objection was lodged in a letter of 29 January 2020. Subsequently, the court finds that the tax officer - if she makes use of an objection advisory committee - should have made a decision no later than 16 April 2020. This decision period has been exceeded. The court further establishes that the plaintiff&#39;s agent has validly given notice of default to the tax officer by letter of 20 April 2020 and that (more than) two weeks have passed since then.</p></div><span class="linebreak1"> </span><div class="parablock"><p>The appeal is apparently well founded.</p></div><p> 4. Article 4:17 of the Awb stipulates that if a decision is not taken on time, the administrative authority must pay a penalty for each day that it is in default for a maximum of 42 days. The penalty for the first fourteen days is € 23 per day, the following fourteen days € 35 per day and the other days € 45 per day. The administrative body will determine the penalty within two weeks after the last day on which the penalty was due (Article 4:18, first paragraph, of the Awb).</p><p> The levy officer has not determined the amount of the penalty. The court will still do this in accordance with Article 8: 55c of the Awb. The court establishes that the notice of default is dated November 28, 2019 and was received by the tax officer on December 3, 2019. The court finds that more than 42 days have passed since two weeks after receipt of the notice of default, and that the tax officer has still not decided on the notice of objection. The court therefore ruled that the tax officer has forfeited the maximum amount of € 1,442 in penalties.</p><p> 5. Pursuant to Article 8: 55d, first paragraph, of the Awb, the court will determine if the appeal is well-founded and no decision has yet been announced that the administrative authority will announce a decision within two weeks after the day on which the decision is sent.<span class="linebreak1"> </span></p><div class="parablock"><p>In view of the measures that currently apply in the Netherlands to prevent the spread of the corona virus COVID-19, the court finds that there is now a special situation as referred to in Article 8: 55d, third paragraph of the Awb. . The court will therefore determine that the tax officer must make and send a decision within four weeks after the day on which this judgment is sent.</p></div><span class="linebreak1"> </span><div class="parablock"><p>In accordance with Article 8: 55d, second paragraph, of the Awb and in accordance with national policy (published on www.rechtspraak.nl), the court determines that Rijkswaterstaat is required to pay a penalty of € 100 for each day with which the aforementioned said term is exceeded, with a maximum of € 15,000.</p></div><span class="linebreak1"> </span><p>6. Because the court declares the appeal to be well-founded, the court determines that the tax officer reimburses the plaintiff the court fee paid by him.</p><p> 7. In addition, the court orders the tax officer to pay the legal costs incurred by the plaintiff. The litigation costs are calculated in accordance with the Administrative Costs Decree. The tax officer is ordered to reimburse the costs of legal aid. The court has set these costs at € 262.50 (1 point for submitting the notice of appeal with a value per point of € 525.00 and a weighting factor of 0.5). The court is of the opinion that this case is of light weight, because the case is only about whether the decision period has been exceeded and whether a penalty payment is due.<span class="linebreak2"> </span></p></div><div class="section beslissing"><h2>Decision</h2><p> The court:</p><ul name="ID0EJG" class="mark"><li> <span class="mark">-</span><p> declares the appeal well-founded;</p></li><li> <span class="mark">-</span><p> annuls the failure to take a decision on the objection on time, which can be equated with a decision;</p></li><li> <span class="mark">-</span><p> orders the tax officer to make a decision on the objection known within four weeks after the day this decision was sent;</p></li><li> <span class="mark">-</span><p> sets the penalty forfeited by the tax officer at € 1,442;</p></li><li> <span class="mark">-</span><p> determines that the tax officer forfeits the plaintiff a penalty of € 100 for each day by which he exceeds the aforementioned term, with a maximum of € 15,000;</p></li><li> <span class="mark">-</span><p> orders the tax officer to pay the plaintiff the paid court fee of € 178;</p></li><li> <span class="mark">-</span><p> orders the tax officer to pay the plaintiff&#39;s legal costs to an amount of € 262.50.</p></li></ul><div class="parablock"><p> This judgment was made by mr.

By letter of 4 June 2020, the claimant's authorised representative appealed against the failure of the charging officer to take a decision in due time on the claimant's objection to the request for access to personal data under the General Data Protection Regulation (AVG).

                var instantieNaam='Rechtbank Zeeland-West-Brabant';
+
The court has decided to speed up the handling of the appeal, pursuant to section 8.2.3 of the General Administrative Law Act (Awb).
                if (rechtBankList[instantieNaam] != null)
+
The court then applied Section 8:54(1) of the General Administrative Law Act (Awb), so that no hearing was required.
                {
+
Considerations
                    var u = 'https://statistiek.rechtspraak.nl/';
+
1. On the basis of the documents, the court shall proceed on the basis of the following facts and circumstances.
                    _paq.push(['addTracker', piwikUrl = u+'piwik.php', rechtBankList[instantieNaam]]);
 
                }
 
  
                //Piwik
+
By decision of 12 December 2019 (primary decision), the tax officer decided on the request for access to personal data under the AVG.
                _paq.push(['setCustomUrl', "UitspraakDetailView/ECLI:NL:RBZWB:2020:3789"]);
+
The claimant's authorised representative objected to the primary decision by letter of 29 January 2020.
                _paq.push(['trackPageView', "UIT " + document.title]);
+
By letter of 20 April 2020, the authorised representative of the claimant informed the tax officer that no action had been taken since the objection had not yet been decided on. The representative of the claimant requests the levy official to decide on the objection as soon as possible.
            }
+
On 17 June 2020, the authorised representative of the claimant filed a digital appeal against the failure of the tax officer to take a decision on the claimant's objection in time.
 +
The levy official submitted documents and a statement of defence by letter dated 2 July 2020.
 +
2. An appeal may be lodged against the failure to take a decision in time (Section 6:2, opening words and under b, in conjunction with Section 7:1, subsection 1, opening words and under f, of the General Administrative Law Act). The notice of appeal may be submitted as soon as the administrative body is in default of taking a decision on time and two weeks have passed since the administrative body received a written notice of default (Section 6:12(2) of the General Administrative Law Act). The administrative body shall decide on the objection within six weeks of the day on which the objection period has expired (Section 7:10(1) of the General Administrative Law Act). If the levy official sets up an Advisory Committee on Objections, the decision period shall be twelve weeks after the day on which the objection period has expired (Sections 7:10, first paragraph, and 7:13 of the General Administrative Law Act).
  
 +
3. The levy official submitted documents and a statement of defence by letter dated 2 July 2020. The tax officer wrongly assumed that the appeal did not decide in time on the claimant's objection to the additional assessment for parking tax. It is clear from the notice of appeal of 4 June 2020 that the authorised representative of the claimant is appealing against the failure to decide in time on the objection of 29 January 2020 against the decision of 12 December 2019 deciding on the request for inspection under the AVG of 1 December 2019.
  
        });
+
Now that the duty officer has failed to fulfil his obligation to submit the correct documents and a statement of defence focused on this appeal, the Court finds that the claimant's agent submitted an application for inspection under the AVG by letter of 1 December 2019.
    </script><script type="text/javascript">
+
Pursuant to Article 12(3) of the AVG, the data controller shall provide the data subject with information on the action taken on the request pursuant to Articles 15 through 22 without delay and in any event within one month of receipt of the request. Article 34 of the General Data Protection Implementation Act states that a written decision on the request shall be deemed to be a decision within the meaning of the General Administrative Law Act.
                (function (window, document, dataLayerName, id) {
+
In spite of the absence of a reference for a remedy, the court deems the letter of 12 December 2019 to be a decision within the meaning of the General Administrative Law Act (Awb), which was objected to in good time by letter of 29 January 2020. Subsequently, the District Court finds that the levy official - if she makes use of an Advisory Committee on Objections - should have made a decision by 16 April 2020 at the latest. This decision period has been exceeded. The District Court also found that the claimant's representative validly declared the levy official in default by letter of 20 April 2020 and that (more than) two weeks had elapsed since then.
                window[dataLayerName] = window[dataLayerName] || [], window[dataLayerName].push({ start: (new Date).getTime(), event: "stg.start" });
+
The appeal is manifestly well founded.
                    var scripts = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0], tags = document.createElement('script');
+
4. Article 4:17 of the General Administrative Law Act stipulates that if a decision is not taken on time, the administrative body shall owe a penalty for each day that it is in default for a maximum of 42 days. The penalty shall be € 23 per day for the first fourteen days, € 35 per day for the following fourteen days and € 45 per day for the remaining days. The administrative body shall determine the periodic penalty payment within two weeks after the last day on which the periodic penalty payment was due (Section 4:18(1) of the General Administrative Law Act).
                    function stgCreateCookie(a, b, c) { var d = ""; if (c) { var e = new Date; e.setTime(e.getTime() + 24 * c * 60 * 60 * 1e3), d = "; expires=" + e.toUTCString() } document.cookie = a + "=" + b + d + "; path=/" }
+
The levy official has not determined the amount of the periodic penalty payment. The court will still do so pursuant to Section 8:55c of the General Administrative Law Act. The court finds that the notice of default is dated 28 November 2019 and was received by the levy official on 3 December 2019. The court finds that more than 42 days have elapsed since two weeks after receipt of the notice of default, and that the duty officer has still not decided on the notice of objection. The District Court therefore ruled that the levy official has now forfeited the maximum amount of € 1,442 in periodic penalty payments.

Ruling

COURT SEAGOING WESTBRABANT
Administrative law
Case number: BRE 20/6846 AVG
judgment of 13 August 2020 of the single chamber in the case between
name plaintiff] , at [place name] , plaintiff,
authorised representative: [authorised representative] ,
and
the tax officer of the municipality of Bergen op Zoom, defendant.
Proceedings
By letter of 4 June 2020, the claimant's authorised representative appealed against the failure of the charging officer to take a decision in due time on the claimant's objection to the request for access to personal data under the General Data Protection Regulation (AVG).

The court has decided to speed up the handling of the appeal, pursuant to section 8.2.3 of the General Administrative Law Act (Awb).
The court then applied Section 8:54(1) of the General Administrative Law Act (Awb), so that no hearing was required.
Considerations
1. On the basis of the documents, the court shall proceed on the basis of the following facts and circumstances.

By decision of 12 December 2019 (primary decision), the tax officer decided on the request for access to personal data under the AVG.
The claimant's authorised representative objected to the primary decision by letter of 29 January 2020.
By letter of 20 April 2020, the authorised representative of the claimant informed the tax officer that no action had been taken since the objection had not yet been decided on. The representative of the claimant requests the levy official to decide on the objection as soon as possible.
On 17 June 2020, the authorised representative of the claimant filed a digital appeal against the failure of the tax officer to take a decision on the claimant's objection in time.
The levy official submitted documents and a statement of defence by letter dated 2 July 2020.
2. An appeal may be lodged against the failure to take a decision in time (Section 6:2, opening words and under b, in conjunction with Section 7:1, subsection 1, opening words and under f, of the General Administrative Law Act). The notice of appeal may be submitted as soon as the administrative body is in default of taking a decision on time and two weeks have passed since the administrative body received a written notice of default (Section 6:12(2) of the General Administrative Law Act). The administrative body shall decide on the objection within six weeks of the day on which the objection period has expired (Section 7:10(1) of the General Administrative Law Act). If the levy official sets up an Advisory Committee on Objections, the decision period shall be twelve weeks after the day on which the objection period has expired (Sections 7:10, first paragraph, and 7:13 of the General Administrative Law Act).

3. The levy official submitted documents and a statement of defence by letter dated 2 July 2020. The tax officer wrongly assumed that the appeal did not decide in time on the claimant's objection to the additional assessment for parking tax. It is clear from the notice of appeal of 4 June 2020 that the authorised representative of the claimant is appealing against the failure to decide in time on the objection of 29 January 2020 against the decision of 12 December 2019 deciding on the request for inspection under the AVG of 1 December 2019.

Now that the duty officer has failed to fulfil his obligation to submit the correct documents and a statement of defence focused on this appeal, the Court finds that the claimant's agent submitted an application for inspection under the AVG by letter of 1 December 2019.
Pursuant to Article 12(3) of the AVG, the data controller shall provide the data subject with information on the action taken on the request pursuant to Articles 15 through 22 without delay and in any event within one month of receipt of the request. Article 34 of the General Data Protection Implementation Act states that a written decision on the request shall be deemed to be a decision within the meaning of the General Administrative Law Act.
In spite of the absence of a reference for a remedy, the court deems the letter of 12 December 2019 to be a decision within the meaning of the General Administrative Law Act (Awb), which was objected to in good time by letter of 29 January 2020. Subsequently, the District Court finds that the levy official - if she makes use of an Advisory Committee on Objections - should have made a decision by 16 April 2020 at the latest. This decision period has been exceeded. The District Court also found that the claimant's representative validly declared the levy official in default by letter of 20 April 2020 and that (more than) two weeks had elapsed since then.
The appeal is manifestly well founded.
4. Article 4:17 of the General Administrative Law Act stipulates that if a decision is not taken on time, the administrative body shall owe a penalty for each day that it is in default for a maximum of 42 days. The penalty shall be € 23 per day for the first fourteen days, € 35 per day for the following fourteen days and € 45 per day for the remaining days. The administrative body shall determine the periodic penalty payment within two weeks after the last day on which the periodic penalty payment was due (Section 4:18(1) of the General Administrative Law Act).
The levy official has not determined the amount of the periodic penalty payment. The court will still do so pursuant to Section 8:55c of the General Administrative Law Act. The court finds that the notice of default is dated 28 November 2019 and was received by the levy official on 3 December 2019. The court finds that more than 42 days have elapsed since two weeks after receipt of the notice of default, and that the duty officer has still not decided on the notice of objection. The District Court therefore ruled that the levy official has now forfeited the maximum amount of € 1,442 in periodic penalty payments.
5. Pursuant to Section 8:55d(1) of the General Administrative Law Act (Awb), if the appeal is well-founded and a decision has not yet been announced, the court shall decide that the administrative body shall publish a decision within two weeks of the day on which the decision is sent.

In view of the measures currently in force in the Netherlands to prevent the spread of the corona virus COVID-19, the District Court is of the opinion that there is now a special situation as referred to in Section 8:55d(3) of the Awb. The District Court will therefore determine that the duty officer must still make and send a decision within four weeks of the day on which this ruling is sent.
Pursuant to Article 8:55d(2) of the Awb and in accordance with the national policy (published on www.rechtspraak.nl), the court will determine that Rijkswaterstaat owes a penalty payment of € 100 for each day by which the aforementioned period is exceeded, with a maximum of € 15,000.
6. Because the court declares the appeal to be well-founded, the court determines that the duty officer reimburses the plaintiff for the court fee he has paid.
7. In addition, the court shall order the levy official to pay the legal costs incurred by the plaintiff. The costs of the proceedings shall be calculated in accordance with the Decree on Administrative Law Costs. The duty officer shall be ordered to reimburse the costs of legal assistance. The court sets these costs at € 262.50 (1 point for filing the appeal with a value per point of € 525.00 and a weighting factor of 0.5). The court is of the opinion that this case is of light weight, because the case only concerns the question whether the decision period has been exceeded and whether a penalty payment is due.
