Legal advice / Camera Surveillance

Camera surveillance can be useful for security or monitoring purposes, but may impact the privacy of those who are being filmed.

Privacy and national law impose specific requirements for camera surveillance. These requirements differ for every kind of surveillance purpose. Examples of different purposes are protecting your home or company against burglary or the monitoring of your employees.

We can assess which kinds of national laws are applicable for your purpose of camera surveillance, and what obligations you might have. This can be a general camera surveillance law, like the Camerawetin Belgium, but also more specific laws, the employment law for example.

Cameras often film people. The surveillance might infringe the privacy of these people; it is therefore necessary to assess this infringement and to make sure that the use of cameras is compliant with European privacy law (The General Data Protection Regulation, the ‘GDPR’).

Privacy assessments often require a case-by-case approach.

We can draft a clear-cut advice about your camera use, in which we will explain which obligations you have under national and privacy law. This advice is always practical and tailored to your specific situation.
