EDPB website auditing tool

The EDPB website auditing tool helps analyse whether websites are compliant with the law. The new tool allows the preparation, completion and evaluation of audits directly in the tool by a simple visit to the website concerned.

The EDPB website auditing tool was developed in the context of the EDPB Support Pool of Experts (SPE) and can be used by both legal and technical auditors at data protection authorities (DPAs), as well as by controllers and processors who wish to test their own websites. 

The EDPB website auditing tool is a Free and Open Source Software under the EUPL 1.2 Licence and is available for download on code.europa.eu 

While several website auditing tools already exist, these usually require technical expertise. The EDPB website auditing tool by contrast is easy to use in order to facilitate enforcement by national DPAs and compliance checks by controllers. 

The EDPB website auditing tool is also compatible with other tools, such as the EDPS website evidence collector, and allows auditors to import and evaluate the results of audits carried out on those tools.
