EU approves regulation prohibiting national data storage requirements

Wednesday 20 June 2018 | 10:55 CET | News
The EU institutions have reached a political agreement on a new regulation prohibiting requirements for national data storage in order to encourage the free flow of non-personal data in Europe. First proposed by the European Commission in September 2017, the new regulation will complement the General Data Protection Regulation protecting personal data and make it easier for businesses to transfer data across borders.
