Trade associations publish critical statement on Data Act

February 1, 2023

Thirty cross-industry organizations have issued a joint statement calling the Data Act “a leap into the unknown.”

In the statement published on the DigitalEurope website, they call for the Data Act to address concerns about trade secrets and privacy, differentiate between B2B and B2C rules, and limit B2G data requests to public emergencies, among other things. They also call for a 36-month transition period, which would be a further extension of the 24 months called for by the IMCO Committee in its recent opinion, which is already twice as long as the 12 months proposed by the European Commission.
