ETNO - GSMA Joint Statement: Protecting consumers while supporting innovation under the ePR 

This week, Marju Lauristin, Member of European Parliament, presented her draft report on the ePrivacy Regulation (ePR) to the LIBE Committee. ETNO and GSMA welcomed some aspects of the draft report, but also expressed their concerns as to the ability of the telecoms sector to deliver more innovation, increased societal benefits and economic growth in the context of an overly restricting approach to the ePR.

Lise Fuhr, Director General of ETNO, said: “A harmonized and horizontal approach is good for citizens’ trust and for European innovators alike. The ePrivacy regulation should not undo what the GDPR achieved. An overly-restrictive approach to ePrivacy would target and discriminate one single sector. This would undermine European innovation without meaningfully increasing the level of protection of our citizens”.
