Positionspapier Position Paper – ePrivacy Regulation
The Finnish Presidency of the Council of the European Union recently published its first Presidency Discussion Paper (10753/19) regarding the ePrivacy Regulation (ePR).
Bitkom welcomes the steps already taken on the text of the ePrivacy Regulation but thinks there are still many unresolved areas and the file needs further work and in depth discussion. A clear, coherent and future-proof text is needed to move on to trilogue discussions. We therefore welcomed the Presidency´s working plan and the objective to continue the negotiations on the ePrivacy proposal and further the discussions as far as possible with the aim to ensure high quality of the legislation. As Bitkom has always provided comments and industry insights on several questions regarding the ePR, we would like to use this opportunity to answer the Presidency´s questions on the dossier as well.
