The EU Data Governance Act

background-image

In November 2020, the European Commission released a draft of the new Data Governance Act. This came as a result of the 2020 European Data Strategy that aims to facilitate data sharing across sectors and member states.

Data altruism, enhanced obligations for data intermediaries, restriction of non-personal data transfer, secure processing environment, and increased obligations related to the reuse of certain categories of protected public-sector data including personal data are some of the highlights of the Data Governance Act.

The DGA defines new rules for trading data and prohibits tying intermediation services with other services such as cloud storage or business analytics. The DGA has been published in the Official Journal of the EU, to enter into effect on 23 June 2022. The Act will apply in full form from 24 September 2023.
