Data protection authorities of the federal states (“Länder”)

In Germany, the supervisory landscape in the field of data protection is federally structured. In addition to supervising the state authorities and local authorities, the data protection authorities of the federal states are also generally competent for the non-public sector. If there is an act on freedom of information or transparency in the respective federal state (“Land”), the commissioners of the federal states also act as independent supervisory authorities.

Here you will find the current contact details for all Länder.
