European Consumer Organizations Back New EU Privacy Effort

22 August 2012:  The Electronic Privacy Information Centre (EPIC) reports that BEUC, the association of European consumer organizations, has published a Position Paper on Data Protection supporting a new European Union privacy initiative.  BEUC states that the proposed Privacy Regulation “addresses the main challenges and the shortcomings of the current framework with the aim of enhancing the rights of data subjects and restoring control over the processing of their own personal data,” but BEUC cautions that “several provisions still need to be clarified to ensure the EU framework is effective and becomes the global standard for data protection.”
