Tasks and powers of Slovenia’s supervisory authority

The tasks and powers of the Slovenian Information Commissioner are, in principle, comparable to the tasks and powers of other European supervisory authorities. There is, however, one notable exception arising from the fact that the GDPR has not yet been properly transposed into national legislation. As long as the ZVOP-1 is not amended or replaced, the Information Commissioner has the power to perform inspections, yet it does not have the power to impose fines pursuant to Art. 83 GDPR (see section “Sanctions and penalties” for more information). Hence, no administrative fines can currently be imposed in Slovenia for a violation of the GDPR.
