Finance & Economy

The financial crisis has emphasised the need to harmonise rules on the functioning of financial markets, a crucial source of financing in today´s economy. The EU actively tries to improve, in particular, the accountability of financial institutions and transparency of financial markets, at the same time combatting tax evasion and money laundering. These legitimate policies often require, in practice, the collection, use and storage of large amounts of personal information. Therefore, it is necessary to balance public policy objectives with the fundamental rights to privacy and data protection.

EDPS finds major deficiencies in anti-money laundering proposals

The Commission proposals on money transfers, prevention of money laundering and terrorist financing need to do more than make mere references to data protection, said the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) today. Specific safeguards, such as the right of individuals to be informed and the respect of the principles of proportionality and purpose limitation are essential to prevent ordinary citizens from being excessively profiled by service providers on dubious grounds with potentially damaging effects.
