The European Parliament has formalised its position on the Data Act, a proposed law to create a single market for data within the EU. The Parliament’s position includes amendments to the proposed legislation, including measures to strengthen data protection and privacy, ensuring that businesses are held accountable for data breaches, and promoting data use for the public good.

The next step in the legislative process is negotiations between the Parliament and the EU Council of Ministers, intending to finalise the law later this year.
