European Data Protection Supervisor, Peter Hustinx, issues opinion on “Review of the Data Protection Legal Framework”


18 January 2011 — The European Data Protection Supervisor, Peter Hustinx, has issued an opinion in response to the Commission’s Communication regarding the “Review of the Data Protection Legal Framework” . Hustinx agrees with the Commission that a review of the present legal framework for data protection in the EU is necessary in order to ensure effective protection in a further developing information society. On the other hand, Hustinx believes that a more ambitious approach than the one proposed by the Commission would lead to a more effective system.
