In May 2020, the European Commission is set to deliver its first review report on the EU General Data Protection Regulation. The preparations are well underway, but, according to Morrison & Foerster's Lokke Moerel, rumor has it the commission does not intend to draft proposals to reform or fix apparent flaws in the GDPR. "The limited appetite for a substantial reform is understandable," she writes, "but I find it harder to justify the commission would not be willing to remedy apparent flaws. In my opinion, there are quite a few inconsistencies in various provisions, though there is always a risk the wish is the father of the thought." In this post for Privacy Perspectives, Moerel details 11 issues she has spotted in the regulation while welcoming other insights, as well.
