Last Updated: July 2022

This is a multipart series intended to provide privacy professionals with an overview of new EU legislation adopted since May 2022 under the European Union’s Strategy for Data, such as the EU Data Governance Act, the Digital Services Act and the Digital Markets Act. Each brief will depict a legislation’s objective, material and territorial scope, main requirements, enforcement, and oversight structure.


EU Data Governance Act: 101
In the first of this multipart series, we explore the EU Data Governance Act. The EU Data Governance Act seeks to foster public sector information reuse; to create a supervisory framework for the provision of data sharing services; and to establish a framework for voluntary registration of entities which collect and process data made available for altruistic purposes. This brief provides an overview of the DGA’s objective, material and territorial scope, main requirements, enforcement, and oversight structure.


More briefs will be added to this page soon.
