New Study on Free Flow of Non-personal Data

Did you know that the EU legal framework does not just ensure the free flow of personal data (through the General Data Protection Regulation), but also provides for the free flow of non-personal data through the Free Flow of Non-Personal Data Regulation?

Spark Legal Network, in consortium with Deloitte and Timelex, will be working on evaluating the Free Flow of Non-Personal Data Regulation under the Study supporting the evaluation of Regulation (EU) 2018/1807 on a framework for the free flow of non-personal data in the European Union. More specifically, the Consortium will assist the Commission in evaluating the existing legal and policy framework applicable to the free flow of non-personal data in the European Union, assessing the role the FFD Regulation has played in ensuring free flow of non-personal data across the EU.

Spark Legal Network’s research will focus on the assessment of the implementation by Member States of Article 4(1) of the FFD Regulation, which prohibits data localisation requirements. Issues of data localisation arise when national laws, regulations, administrative provision or practice in the Member States require the keeping of certain electronic data (e.g. accounting documents, business files, records) within the territory of individual Member States. In addition, Spark will be working on the legal analysis of other aspects of the Regulation, for example, its internal and external coherence.
