A banner was posted at the beginning of 2012 on the website of Poland’s Inspector General for Personal Data Protection—”Notice: Change of law!”
The Polish Inspector General for Personal Data Protection will have authority to impose fines for failure to comply with data protection orders. The ability to withdraw consent to processing of personal data has also been clarified.
Even though a specific code of conduct and a structured process apply to clinical trials, there are lacking dedicated, specific regulations on protecting the personal data obtained in such trials.
On 25 June 2010 the Polish Parliament appointed Wojciech Wiewiórowski to the position of Inspector General for Personal Data Protection. The term of the current inspector general, Michał Serzycki, ends on 13 July 2010.
