On Tuesday, 27 June, the Council of the European Union under the Swedish Presidency announced that it had reached a provisional agreement with the European Parliament on the EU Data Act, the proposed regulation to harmonise rules on fair access to and use of data.
In a press release, Erik Slottner, Swedish minister for public administration, said, "Today’s agreement will accelerate our Union’s digital transformation. Once the data act enters into force, it will unlock the economic and societal potential of data and technologies and contribute to an internal market for data. It will enhance the single market, allowing data to flow freely within the EU and across sectors for the benefit of our citizens and businesses."
