Publication Implementation of the harmonised EU-wide in-vehicle emergency call ("eCall")

EDPS comments on the Commission Recommendation and the accompanying impact assessment on the implementation of the harmonised EU-wide in-vehicle emergency call ("eCall")

The EDPS has provided comments in relation to the Commission's intention to establish a European regulatory framework on eCall. One of its major components will consist in putting forward a proposal for a Regulation providing for the mandatory introduction of the in-vehicle part of the eCall service in new type-approved vehicles in Europe.

The EDPS particularly welcomes a harmonised European approach to eCall, which should contribute to setting consistent data protection standards for its deployment and use. However the EDPS underlines that the choice of a mandatory introduction of eCall will have to be properly justified in terms of data protection. Furthermore, appropriate guarantees will need to be set forth in the Regulation which take into account data protection principles, including clarifying the responsibilities of the different operators and adopting rules for the processing of eCall data by all actors of the eCall chain. Given the data protection implications of the envisaged Regulation, the EDPS and the Article 29 Working Party should be duly consulted on the proposal from the Commission for a Regulation on eCall.

Publication Minimum stocks of crude oil and petroleum products

Opinion on the proposal for a Council Directive imposing an obligation on Member States to maintain minimum stocks of crude oil and/or petroleum products, OJ C 128, 06.06.2009, p. 42

The current issue serves as a good illustration of the fact that there should be a constant awareness of the rules on data protection. In a situation which concerns Member States and their obligation to hold emergency oil stocks, which are owned mainly by legal entities, the processing of personal data is not very obvious, but, even though it is not envisaged as such, it can still take place. One should in any case consider the likelihood of personal data processing taking place and act accordingly.

Opinion on the proposal for a Regulation establishing common rules concerning the conditions to be complied with to pursue the occupation of road transport operator, OJ C 14, 19.01.2008, p. 1

On 12 September 2007, the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) issued his opinion on the Proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing common rules concerning the conditions to be complied with to pursue the occupation of road transport operator.
 
The regulation establishes conditions relating to good repute, financial standing and professional competence which road transport companies have to satisfy. The proposal introduces national electronic registers that will have to be interconnected between all member states, facilitating the exchange of information between Member States. It contains a specific provision on data protection.
 
The EDPS advises that the proposed Regulation is amended to:
 
  • ensure greater definition of terms such as "good repute";
  • clarify ambiguities in the role of national authorities; and
  • ensure the requirements of Directive 95/46/EC are respected.
