E-006966/2017(ASW)
Answer given by Mr Avramopoulos on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-006966/2017

The Commission is aware of the Italian law and will form its decision whether to launch infringement procedures on the appropriate information and analysis.

Without prejudice to the competence of the Commission as guardian of the Treaties, the supervision and enforcement of data protection legislation falls within the competence of national authorities, in particular the data protection supervisory authorities and the courts.

Work is ongoing on the issue of data retention, following the European Court of Justice ruling in the framework of the Working Party on Information Exchange and Data Protection (DAPIX) group of the Council, to which the Commission is participating. As indicated in the 2018 work programme, the Commission will finalise its guidance on the way forward on data retention.
