EC Reconsiders Approach to European Privacy Reform

Viviane Reding, the European Commission Vice President in charge of the reform of the European privacy law, has received negative opinions from a handful of Directorates-General in the European Commission on an internal draft of the General Data Protection Regulation. As a consequence, the draft will not be ready for the official publication that was originally scheduled for the end of January 2012. Instead, Commissioner Reding is said to be working on a communication outlining reconsidered objectives for the reform process. Publication of the draft Regulation is now expected sometime in February or March.
