June Update: Tech and Telecoms

31 May 2018

What's on the agenda this month

by Leonie Hogervorst, EU Policy Analyst

The Bulgarian Presidency is coming to an end in June, with Austria taking over the Presidency of the Council on 1 July. 

Bulgaria aims to find agreement on some files, discuss or achieve progress towards a common Council position on others at the Telecommunications Council, which has ePrivacy, cybersecurity, re-use of public sector information, the European Electronic Communications Code recast and free flow of non-personal data on the agenda. 

As for Parliament, a Committee vote on the copyright directive is set to take place after several postponements. 

The IMCO Committee’s speedy work on the free flow of data file means that the vote happens in June as well, while work on other key digital files kicks off or continues. 

Trilogues continue on the Electronic Communications Code (recast), the Audiovisual Media Services Directive revision, the contracts for the supply of digital content and the SatCab Regulation.
