Proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on harmonised rules on fair access to and use of data (Data Act)
With the Data Act, the EU Commission intends to enact comprehensive rules for a fair and innovative data economy in the EU and thus, in particular, specify who is entitled to make commercial use of non-personal data generated in the EU, especially data collected, obtained or otherwise generated by connected products or related services in the so called internet of things (IoT).
However, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) continues to apply to the processing of personal data by manufacturers of products and providers of services as well as the right to access personal data.
The Data Act is a pillar of the European Data Strategy.
It will foster a competitive data market by opening up new opportunities for businesses and making data more accessible to every consumer and business.#EUDataAct #DigitalEU
