The European Commission is asking the Court of Justice of the European Union to impose financial sanctions on Greece and Spain for failing to transpose the rules on the Data Protection Law Enforcement Directive before the May 6, 2018, deadline, according to a news release. The commission has requested the CJEU fine both countries beginning the day after the missed deadline through compliance. The commission is seeking a minimum lump sum of 1,310,000 euros and a daily penalty payment of 22,169.70 euros from Greece and a minimum lump sum of 5,290,000 euros and a daily penalty payment of 89, 548.20 euros from Spain. The commission first began infringement proceedings by sending formal notices to both countries, first in July 2018 and again in January 2019. Neither country has notified the commission they have adopted national measures to transpose the directive.
