Digital Europe position on the Data Act

February 23, 2022

Digital Europe – the leading Digital European industry association – shared its position on the Data Act proposal. It argues that the Data Act will unleash value in the data economy if it acts as an enabler rather than a set of restraining obligations.

In particular, Digital Europe expressed significant concerns that the new rules would undermine companies’ contractual freedom by replacing voluntary and commercially viable data sharing agreements. In addition, the current proposal would severely restrict international data transfers beyond the provisions set in the GDPR, therefore leading to significant economic losses for European digital businesses.
