The European Data Protection Board has released a statement calling for the timely adoption of the ePrivacy Regulation. The EDPB is asking the European Commission, Parliament and Council to join forces to install the rules as soon as possible now that the EU General Data Protection Regulation has gone into effect. The board has also offered advice on handling parts of the proposed ePrivacy Regulation, including the enforcement of consent requirements for cookies, ensuring privacy protections are in place for all forms of electronic communications, including by “over-the-top” services and obtaining user consent in an efficient manner before any data is processed. Editor's Note: IAPP Content Director Sam Pfeifle wrote about whether Brexit could derail the ePrivacy Regulation in this piece for Privacy Perspectives.
