October Update: Digital

4 October 2018

What's on the agenda this month

by Leonie Hogervorst, Digital Policy Executive

October will be a month full of trilogue talks in the digital area: the copyright directive has been given the green light from Parliament to enter into negotiations with Council, while trilogues continue on the SatCab regulation, the Cybersecurity Act and the contracts for the supply of digital content.

Discussions at the Parliament’s Committee level continue on the consumer protection proposal as well as the proposal on promoting fairness and transparency for business users of online intermediation services.

Plenary has signed off on the agreements reached on the audiovisual media services directive and the free flow of non-personal data regulation, so only Council now has to formally adopt them as last step in the legislative process.

Council will furthermore continue work on the ePrivacy Regulation. The Austrian Presidency this month holds an event on challenges for the European cultural, media and creative sectors in the digital age and another one on digital education.
