The DPIA is required in two circumstances: either before the start of data collection and processing or when significant changes are made to the company’s already investigated processes. In case you launch a new product, a DPIA is required to assess the risks associated with processing personal data. It is also necessary when the data processing environment changes (new hardware, software, or processing rules are introduced), or when new categories of data are added to existing processes.
The regulation doesn’t specify a frequency for conducting a DPIA since it depends on the company’s activities. This regulation requires a DPIA for every new project that involves personal data.
