Guidelines 01/2019 on Codes of Conduct and Monitoring Bodies under the GDPR
Section 8.4 Refusal
53. If the decision made by the CompSA is to refuse referring a draft code to the Board the process will come to an end and it will be a matter for the code owners to analyse the findings of the decision and reconsider revising their draft code. It would also be necessary for the code owners to resubmit the code for an approval at a later stage, if they choose to do so. The CompSA should also notify all concerned SAs of its position and reasons for refusing to approve a code.
