EDPS Opinion on the proposal for an amendment of Council Directive 2011/16/EU relating to administrative cooperation in the field of taxation

With this Opinion, issued pursuant to Article 42(1) of Regulation (EU) 2018/1725, the EDPS puts forward recommendations aiming at minimizing the impact of a Commission’s legislative proposal amending Directive 2011/16/EU on administrative cooperation in the field of taxation on the fundamental right to privacy and to the protection of personal data of individuals. These recommendations are intended to ensure compliance with the applicable data protection legal framework, while avoiding jeopardizing the efficacy and efficiency of the administrative action on the fight against tax evasion.
