On 17 May, Stibbe will host a Masterclass for the members of Nederlands Genootschap van Bedrijfsjuristen (NGB), the Dutch association of general counsels, about administrative supervision. Anna Collignon, Rein Wesseling, Muriël Rosing and Tom Barkhuysen from Stibbe will discuss the relevant supervisory issues from various legal perspectives.
Administrative supervisors and enforcement authorities
At some point, companies will be confronted with administrative supervisors and enforcement authorities such as the Dutch Data Protection Authority, the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets or the Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate. In these circumstances, what should companies do? What is the legal position of the company? What do the authorities expect from companies? How can companies maintain a working relationship with the supervisors? During the Masterclass, the four lawyers from Stibbe will answer such questions and provide tips and tricks to prevent problems with the authorities and on what to do when something goes wrong and the authority decides to take action. The Masterclass will end with an interactive case study in which all topics are brought together.
