MyData – one of the key players in the field of personal data governance – publishes a first reaction to the Data Act. In their reaction, titled “EU data act — making data portability actionable” they highlight the effects of the new data access provisions for consumers and businesses which they characterize as GDPR on steroids. In this light, according to their submission, is important to make sure 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.
