The proposed ePrivacy Regulation, once adopted, will update the “rules of the road” for privacy and electronic communications. It will modernise existing principles, clarify the technological requirements and provide for effective enforcement. The EDPS issued his advice on the ePrivacy review in a Preliminary Opinion (5/2016) and on the European Commission’s proposed Regulation in Opinion 06/2017. Given developments in deliberations on the proposal, and for the benefit of the co-legislator, we have decided to offer advice and clarifications on some specific issues, in line with our previous opinions.1 These recommendations focus on the need to ensure legal certainty and a high level of protection of the fundamental rights to privacy and data protection.
