Proposal for a Regulation on the personal data protection: processing and free movement of data (General Data Protection Regulation, 2012/0011(COD))

Published:

Legal and General

Orgalime would like to stress that the General Data Protection Regulation needs enough time for evaluation in the Council and in the European Parliament. We would advise against rushing into an agreement not preceded by a thorough discussion between the institutions, and with all potentially affected stakeholders. We therefore welcome the fact that the European Parliament is thoroughly debating the proposal. While we agree with the general direction taken by the Commission in the data protection reform, we are reluctant towards the proposals to impose disproportionate new obligations imposed on companies by the Regulation. This would be disproportionate and a clear violation of the 'think small first principle' which is a core principle that is supposed to be enshrined
