The Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union has released a progress report on the proposed ePrivacy Regulation. The update includes the "state of play" in the council, including discussions in the Working Party on Telecommunications and Information Society and at the council on "concerns about the way the ePrivacy proposal would interact with new technologies," including machine-to-machine, internet-of-things and artificial intelligence technology. In turn, the presidency has introduced clarifications in the respective recitals to address the concerns. Discussions have also included issues involving the prevention, detection and reporting of child abuse imagery, as well as how ePrivacy would interact with existing and future data retention regimes and the provisions related to supervisory authorities, each of which member states have had diverging views.
