Ministers To Mull Exemptions to Rule
PRIVACY LAW—EUJune 6, 2013
EU Justice Ministers will today consider granting EU institutions “a sweeping exemption” from new data protection rules that would require the institutions to employ a data protection officer and consult the European Data Protection Supervisor, EurActiv reports. The European Commission says the rule is currently stricter than general rules on data protection. The exemption would apply after the new regulation is passed, but would include the stipulation that the commission update existing law to bring it in line with the revised regulation.
