Norway opposes European directory listings opt-in proposal

Thursday 15 June 2017 | 12:36 CET | News

The GDPR is due to enter force in May 2018. Minister of Transport and Communication Ketil Solvik-Olsen said Norway's opt-out system works perfectly well, and Norway wants to be able to continue to list subscribers by default.
