Article 54a Lead Authority 1. Where the processing of personal data takes place in the context of the activities of an establishment of a controller or a processor in the Union, and the controller or processor is established in more than one Member State, or where personal data of the residents in several Member States are processed, the supervisory authority of the main establishment of the controller or processor shall act as a single contact point for the controller or processor. 2. The lead authority shall ensure coordination with the authorities involved at any stage of supervisory proceedings against a controller or a processor within the meaning of paragraph 1. For that purpose it shall in particular submit any relevant information and consult the other authorities before it adopts a measure intended to produce legal effects vis-à-vis a controller or a processor within the meaning of paragraph 1. The lead authority shall take the utmost account of the opinions of the authorities involved. 3. The European Data Protection Board shall at the request of a competent authority designate a single contact for the controller or processor and ensure coordination with the other supervisory authorities involved, in case where: (a) it is unclear from the facts of the case or where the competent authorities do not agree on which supervisory authority shall act as single contact point; (b) the controller is not established in the Union, but residents of different Member States are affected by processing operations within the scope of this Regulation. 4. The lead authority shall not adopt a measure under paragraph 2 if an involved authority within the meaning of paragraph 1 objects to the measure within a period of three weeks after submission of the draft measure by the lead authority. In that case, the issue shall be dealt with by the European Data Protection Board in accordance with the procedure set out in Article 58.
