EDRi's document pool on the General Data Protection Regulation
Thu 25 Jun 2015, 12:40

In January 2012, the European Commission, following extensive consultations, published a draft Regulation. After 3 years of discussion following the first proposal being made by the European Commission (and a first reading by the European Parliament that was finalised in 2014), the Council has decided to agree on a new text (a “general approach“) that will be the object of current trialogues.

The trilogue discussions between the three institutions officially started on 24 June 2015 with the first meeting in Brussels. In order to explain the process, EDRi will be publishing information and analysis in a document pool which will be updated as the negotiations advance.
