Seems there is no benchmarking. We are confused who to pay and how much to pay.

Hi Sumita Arora
What services are you looking into GDPR space ?
Can you share specifics and details.
There are currently no authorised certification bodies. Earlier this year, the Article 29 Working Party (constituting the data protection authorities - DPAs - of each Member State) launched a consultation on draft guidelines for accreditation of certification bodies.
The consultation closed at the end of March and the guidelines should be published soon. Once ready, ct national DPAs and accreditation bodies will start to accredit certification bodies, and should also publish details of certification bodies online. Please check with European DPAs’ websites in the coming weeks for details for certification bodies. Examples include the UK ICO, Ireland’s Data Protection Commissioner, France’s CNIL, Spain’s AGDP, and Bavaria’s LDA.
In any case, certification is not necessary to demonstrate GDR compliance. The UK ICO’s website (here) explains the ways one can demonstrate compliance, for example by documenting their data protection policies, having written contracts in place and by documenting any processing activities.
