Following the CJEU ruling in case C-131/12, EU data protection authorities (DPAs), united in the Article 29 Working Party, met yesterday with representatives of Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo!.
On July 15th, the European data protection authorities came together in Brussels to exchange views over the consequences of the Court of Justice of the European Union’s (CJEU) judgment regarding the right to be forgotten on the internet, which was rendered on May 13th, 2014.
One of the Article 29 Working Party's (WP29) mission is to contribute to the uniform application of EU data protection rules. To this aim, the WP29 supported, during its last plenary meeting, the implementation of a generic approach, including as to the definition of an appropriate legal framework for the provision of cloud computing services.
On 12 March, the European Parliament adopted its position in plenary on the draft EU Regulation as well as on the draft ‘Police and Justice’ Directive. It also adopted a resolution on the mass surveillance of European citizens by the NSA.
On 27 February 2014, the WP29 adopted a favourable opinion on a practical referential mapping the requirements of BCR and CBPR. This document was also endorsed by APEC Member Economies on 27 and 28 February 2014.
