In ongoing efforts to move forward with the proposed ePrivacy Regulation in the EU, the Council of the European Union has offered its first revisions, with proposed amendments and deletions, primarily focused on the "operative part of the proposal (articles)" with plans to examine the recitals at a later date. "The revisions are based on the discussions held in the WP TELE [Working Party for Telecommunications and Information Society] meetings and on the written comments provided by delegations to date, and are without prejudice to any comments delegations might wish to make in the future," the draft proposal states. The council Presidency also pointed out that "work on the text will be incremental" and that the "first redraft aims mainly at clarifying certain elements and outlining specific issues to be examined for the purposes of advancing the discussions on the file." Additional WP TELE meetings will be held Sept. 19, 20 and 25. Editor's Note: The IAPP Resource Center has more information on the proposed ePrivacy Regulation.
