Free flow of non-personal data

Free flow of non-personal data means unrestricted movement
of data across borders and IT systems in the EU. It is a key
building block of the Digital Single Market and considered
the most important factor for the data economy to unleash
its full potential and to double its value to 4% of GDP in
2020. The new measures are in line with already existing rules for the free movement and portability of personal data in the EU.
