Data Governance Act

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Data Governance Act (DGA) is a legislative proposal of the European Commission that aims to create a framework which will facilitate data-sharing.[1][2] The proposal was first announced within the 2020 European strategy for data and was officially presented by Margrethe Vestager in 25 November 2020.[3] The DGA covers the data of public bodies, private companies, and citizens. Its main aims are to safely enable the sharing of sensitive data held by public bodies, to regulate data sharing by private actors.[4][failed verification] On 30 November 2021, the EU Parliament and Council reached an agreement on the wording of the DGA.[5] Formal approval by those bodies is still required but that should be procedural.[5]
