The draft European framework on the free flow of non-personal data

On 13 September 2017, the European Commission published its proposal for a Regulation on a framework for the free flow of non-personal data (COM(2017) 495 final). The Commission aims to facilitate the cross border flow of data within the European Union and includes new provisions for data storage and processing services (e.g. cloud services providers). The proposal that purely deals with non-personal data is part of the large scale Strategy for a Digital Single Market (‘DSM’). Just in time for the turn of the year, the European Council gave its view on the Commission’s proposal and published a revised version of the draft (2017/0228 (COD)). Dr Nils Rauer and Andreas Doser of Hogan Lovells International LLP outline the key aspects of the proposed Regulation and provide insight into the practical challenges for businesses.
