Emil Radev, GERB/EPP: Data Protection Regulation Aims to Harmonise Rules in EU Member States

The General Data Protection Regulation aims to harmonise the different rules in the EU member states, Emil Radev, MEP for Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (CEDB/GERB) and EPP, told FOCUS Radio this morning regarding the new rules taking effect as of May. The new regulation mainly concerns the processing, storage and transfer of data within the union, providing a single regulatory regime instead of the existing 28. It will help increase the protection of personal data on the internet, the MEP said. He pointed out the extended territorial scope of the regulation to include companies outside the EU that process personal data of European citizens, such as Google and Facebook. Such companies will have to appoint their representatives in the EU in connection with the regulation, he explained. In addition, the new regulation guarantees greater freedom for users, allowing them to modify or delete personal data.
