The German presidency of the Council of the European Union publishes a compromise proposal for the Data Governance Act. The compromise aims at clarifying the scope and the definitions introduced by the DGA in light of existing initiatives in the field and clarifies the obligation for public sector bodies in making data available to the public. In addition, it stipulates more requirements for data sharing services in making data available for reuse in order to ensure their independence. Finally, it clarifies the role of competent authorities in enforcing the application of the measure and the mandate of the European Data Innovation Board.
