COCIR welcomes the opportunity to provide feedback to the European Commission’s proposal for a European Data Act. Without a doubt, Data Act will play an important role in shaping Europe’s digital future. The proposal aims mainly at creating a regulatory framework to ensure fairer value allocation from data and foster access to and use of data.
It is important, however, that it maintains incentives to invest in ways of generating value through data and ensures consistency with the existing legislation, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation and Medical Device Regulation, which already include requirements covering various aspects of the proposed Data Act.
