12.05.2017 | Positionspapier Bitkom Position: “Building the European Data Economy” consultation
The European Commission adopted a Communication on "Building a European Data Economy", accompanied by a Staff Working Document on January 2017, where it:
- looks at the rules and regulations impeding the free flow of data and present options to remove unjustified or disproportionate data location restrictions, and
- outlines legal issues regarding access to and transfer of data, data portability and liability of non-personal, machine-generated digital data.
To gather further evidence on these topics, a public consultation was launched with stakeholders. Bitkom thanks the EU Commission for the opportunity to take part in the public consultation.
