This joint Position Paper summarises GSMA's and ETNO's views on the proposed European ePrivacy Regulation.
In January 2017, the European Commission issued a proposal to replace the current ePrivacy Directive with an ePrivacy Regulation (ePR). GSMA and ETNO recommend modifying it to provide electronic communications service providers with greater flexibility to use data responsibly.
The event, which will take place in Brussels on Wednesday 27 September, will focus on “Digital Rulemaking in Times of Change”.
Major political, technological and societal events are reshaping our world. As technology and mobility bring about unprecedented opportunities and challenges, political turmoil is reaching geographies that have traditionally been stable. The communications industry arguably plays an increasingly critical role in the life of citizens.
The FT-ETNO Summit will gather leading policymakers, regulators, industry executives and investors from Europe and beyond to discuss and debate the direction of sector reform proposals, and their impact on the role of telecoms in the rapidly developing communications space.
