During 2019, Digital Rights Ireland co-ordinated a team of volunteers to request copies of the Registers of Processing Activities from a number of Irish Public Sector organisations and Semi-State bodies.
Castlebridge provided researchers to review and assess the fitness for purpose of these Registers of Processing Activities. The review focused on the structural completeness and detail recorded in the Register of Processing Activities. It was outside the scope of the study to perform any form of qualitative analysis on the accuracy, completeness, or timeliness of the data recorded in the Register of Processing Activities provided. This study was originally to be be published in early summer 2020, but disruptions due to the Covid-19 pandemic delayed the conclusion of the write up of the analysis.
