Position Paper and Responses on the Public Consultation on the Data Act
In context of the European strategy for data and after the proposal for a Data Governance Act, the European Commission (EC) recently published its roadmap for a Data Act & amended rules on the legal protection of databases (Data Act Roadmap) and subsequently launched a public consultation on the Data Act. Its main goal is to tackle barriers to data sharing. Among the key pillars of the Data Act are B2G and B2B data access and use, cloud services portability, and rights in the context of smart objects.
Bitkom is grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the consultation on the proposed Data Act and welcomes future occasions to offer its expertise in open discussions.
