Last Updated: October 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 DGA 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.


EU Digital Markets Act: 101
Continuing this multipart series, we explore the EU Digital Markets Act. The DMA creates new obligations for big technology platforms acting as “gatekeepers providing core platform services” to create a fairer environment for business users that rely on gatekeepers, and to ensure consumers have access to better services and can easily switch providers. This brief provides an overview of the DMA’s objective, material and territorial scope, prohibited practices, and enforcement.


EU Digital Services Act: 101
The third chart in this series explores the EU Digital Services Act. The DSA aims to harmonize conditions for the provision of intermediary services and increases transparency requirements for online intermediaries. This brief provides an overview of the DSA's objective, key requirements and enforcement.
