September Update: Tech and Telecoms

29 August 2018

What's on the agenda this month

by Leonie Hogervorst, EU Policy Analyst

As the second half of the EU institutional year kicks off in September, the European Parliament in plenary session is expected to vote again on the controversial Copyright directive, after MEPs rejected the JURI mandate before recess. 

Also in plenary, MEPs debate the Cybersecurity Act, agreed on in the ITRE Committee. The Parliament furthermore continues work on the consumer protection proposal, as well as the proposal on promoting fairness and transparency for business users of online intermediation services

The Austrian Presidency holds a High Level Conference on Digital and E-Government this month. Council will be pushed to agree its position on the ePrivacy Regulation as soon as possible, since the institutions are looking to finalise the legislative process on the file before the end of the Parliament’s term. It furthermore continues work on the Copyright directive, where a common position has not yet been found.
