Officials Weigh In on Proposed Regs
PRIVACY LAW—EUMarch 22, 2013
The Hunton & Williams’ Privacy and Information Security Law Blog outlines the views of European legislators on the proposed EU data protection legislation, as voiced in legislative deliberations held by the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE). Comments made by Albrecht, Voss, Ludford, Le Bail, Kohnstamm and Hustinx are all summarized. Another post further explores European Data Protection Supervisor Peter Hustinx’s views outlined in a letter he sent to the chair of LIBE. EU Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding has set a July goal for reaching a political agreement on the regulation, Total Telecom reports, but one EU official says some member countries believe a slow pace is appropriate for these highly technical negotiations.
