Established in 1979, the GPA community has continued to grow ever since, currently comprising more than 100 member authorities across the globe.

Each year, the GPA welcomes new applications for data protection authorities wishing to join as members, as well as for other public entities and international organisations having an interest to become GPA observers.

The deadline for applying for GPA membership closed on 10 July 2020 and will re-open later this year.

If you wish to join the GPA community as an Observer, please complete the relevant application form. Applications for observer status will close on Sunday 9 August 2020, although prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to submit their application at an early stage.

For any questions related to the GPA Accreditation process for membership and observer status please get in touch with the GPA Secretariat at
