Last chance for EU policymakers to fix data protection rules

Europe’s insurers remain extremely concerned about several aspects of proposed EU data protection rules that are due to enter the final stages of discussion by the European institutions, according to Insurance Europe, the European insurance and reinsurance federation.

Today the Council of the EU adopted its general approach on the proposed regulation on the protection and free movement of data. This means that discussions to finalise the rules, called trialogue discussions, can begin between the European Parliament, the Council and the European Commission. Consequently, it is important that insurers’ concerns are taken on board during these final discussions to avoid the rules having unintended consequences.
