BEERG: EU Commission proposes Regulation for Free Movement of Non-personal Data
September 15, 2017
This week, the EU Commission published a proposal for a regulatory framework "to achieve a more competitive and integrated internal market for data storage and other processing services and activities." According to the most recent BEERG Global Labor Newsletter, the proposal aims to:
- Improve the mobility of non-personal data across borders in the single market;
- Make it easier for professional users of data storage/processing services to switch service providers and to port data; and
- Ensure that competent authorities' powers to request and access data for regulatory control purposes remain unaffected.
Separately, the European Commission also published a report assessing the extent to which the Member States have taken the necessary measures in order to comply with a previous data directive. Read the full BEERG Global Labor Newsletter
