The Commission’s new Regulation on ‘Free flow of non-personal data’

On 19 September 2017, the European Commission (‘the Commission’) published a proposal for a Regulation on ‘Free flow of non-personal data’ (‘the Regulation’) that aims to remove obstacles to the free cross border movement of non-personal data. On 19 June 2018, the European Parliament, Council and Commission reached a political agreement on the rules that will enable the free flow of non-personal data in the EU without local restrictions on storage and processing, a change that has long been demanded by stakeholders. In this article Kathrin Schürmann, Partner at Schürmann Rosenthal Dreyer, explores what made such a Regulation necessary and how it came into existence, what its key elements are and what the expected impact on the Digital Single Market and online businesses will be.
