Keep European data flows open, write eight industry associations to the European Commission ahead of the Data Governance Act, scheduled to come out later this month. “We call on the EU to continue to lead by example by strengthening Europe’s commitment to enabling the free flow of data and to continue resisting attempts to introduce data localization measures or requirements. A European approach to the sharing, storing, and processing of data must continue to be shaped according to Europe’s values and based on the principle of openness,” the group, including BSA and techUK, wrote. A leak of the Data Governance Act caused controversy over data localization requirements critics say could fall afoul of the EU’s trade commitments. Internal Market Commissioner Thierry Breton has defended the need to shield sensitive data.
