The Office of the Data Protection Ombudsman has published accreditation criteria for code of conduct monitoring bodies

Codes of conduct are guidelines for the application of data protection legislation in specific industries. They are approved by the Office of the Data Protection Ombudsman. In the private sector, compliance with these codes of conduct is supervised by a monitoring body accredited by the authorities. The Office of the Data Protection Ombudsman issues such accreditations in Finland. Committing to a code of conduct helps organisations comply with the General Data Protection Regulation and demonstrate accountability.
