CONSULTATION

Public consultation on the Data Act

The objective of the Data Act is to propose measures to create a fair data economy by ensuring access to and use of data, including in business-to-business and business-to-government situations. The initiative would not alter data protection legislation and would seek to preserve incentives in data generation. Under this initiative, a review of Directive 96/9/EC on the legal protection of databases is also planned in order to ensure continued relevance for the data economy. This questionnaire aims at consulting all types of stakeholders, including citizens and businesses, about the different measures being explored in preparing the Data Act.
