The Data Act is a proposed Regulation harmonising rules on fair access to and use of data. It will play a key role in the digital decade, helping to shape the rules for the digital economy and society.
The Data Act is part of the overall European strategy for data, and complements the Data Governance Regulation of November 2020 by clarifying who can create value from data and under which conditions. It will also introduce rules concerning the use of data generated by devices connected to the Internet of Things.
