Position paper - EU Data Act – priorities for trilogues

28 Apr 2023
Digital Economy


Last year the European Commission released the Data Act proposal, a legislation meant to ensure fairness in the digital environment, stimulate a competitive data market, open opportunities for data-driven innovation and make data more accessible. Co-legislators are now holding informal interinstitutional negotiations to reach a first reading agreement on the proposal.

At this stage, policymakers should focus on achieving clarity in the new rules and address the outstanding concerns and ambiguity raised by industry stakeholders across all sectors. The American Chamber of Commerce to the EU (AmCham EU) would like to highlight certain concerns and recommendations in the field of cloud switching and interoperability, data sharing, international safeguards and transfers and retroactive applicability.
