Legal Material: EU proposal for Data Protection Regulation
The European Commission has proposed a comprehensive reform of the EU’s 1995 data protection rules relating to privacy right within the European market. Against the backdrop that each of the 27 Member States have implemented the rule differently, the proposal aims at providing a homogeneous framework for Europe’s digital economy. According to the Commission “a single law will do away with the current fragmentation and costly administrative burdens, leading to savings for businesses of around € 2.3 billion a year”
The paper is called:
Proposal for a REGULATION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (General Data Protection Regulation)
