Rules for EU institutions' processing of personal data

11-10-2017

In January 2017, the Commission tabled a proposal for a 'regulation on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data by the Union institutions, bodies, offices and agencies and the free movement of such data'. The aim is to reform the existing Regulation No 45/2001 and to align it to the 2016 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In the European Parliament, the rapporteur presented her draft report to the Civil Liberties Committee in June 2017, and the Committee is due to vote on it in October. In the Council meanwhile, a general approach was agreed in June, opening the way to trilogue negotiations once Parliament has approved its mandate.
