MyData reaction to the Data Act Proposal

February 25, 2022

MyData – one of the key players in the field of personal data governance – published a first reaction to the Data Act. In their reaction, titled “EU Data Act — making data portability actionable,” they highlight the new data access provisions’ effects on consumers and businesses, which they characterize as GDPR on steroids. In this light, according to their submission, it is important to ensure that interoperability requirements are accompanied by well-defined APIs to make the right-to-data interoperability actionable. In addition, it is important to increase legal certainty on the relationship between the Data Act and the Data Governance Act.
