The EU’s roadmap to Data Act is open for feedback

On the 28th of May, the European Commission has opened the feedback period for the Data Act. The regulatory proposal aims to foster data sharing among businesses, as well as between governments and companies, by clarifying legal liabilities of responsible data usage and removing barriers hindering data share. The initiative also reviews the legal protection of databases from the perspective of machine-generated data and IoT. The public consultation is open until the 25th of June, 12 AM (CEST).


The Data Act is part of the European strategy for data. The goal of the strategy is to boost the data-driven economy and technology development by creating a common data space for the EU single market.
