The Proposed European ePrivacy Regulation
GSMA and ETNO Joint Position

In January 2017, the European Commission issued a proposal to replace the current ePrivacy Directive with an ePrivacy Regulation (ePR). The ePR will apply to electronic communications services providers, including OTT (over-the-top) applications, and will supplement the existing General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The GSMA and ETNO welcome the ePR’s commitment to ensuring the confidentiality of communications, which is essential for consumer trust in the digital ecosystem, but recommend modifying it to provide electronic communications service providers with greater flexibility to use data responsibly.
