Member States Negotiate Flexibility Agreement
PRIVACY LAW—EUJuly 30, 2012
During a meeting at the Council of Ministers in Cyprus, a number of EU member states have obtained an agreement that would allow the commission to change data protection laws in the future in order to respond to advancements in technology, Out-Law.com reports. “For us, it’s important that we have legislation that is, of course, detailed enough to give protection to citizens but that is also applicable for a longer period of time,” a Swedish official said. The General Data Protection Regulation would introduce a single data protection law across EU member states. Its draft was revised by the Council of Ministers in June.
