The Committee of the Permanent Representatives of the Governments of the Member States to the European Union (Coreper) on November 27, 2019, released its progress report on the draft ePrivacy Regulation.

The report outlines the main elements discussed in the Working Party’s meetings on Telecommunications and Information Society (‘WP TELE’) during the second half of 2019, such as

  • the protection of terminal equipment information, with specific reference to the issue of conditional access to websites’ content,
  • the processing activities that is necessary to provide the electronic communications service,
  • data retention issues,
  • the way the Draft ePrivacy Regulation would interact with new technologies, such as machine-to-machine and Internet of Things services. 

The report also highlights that the Coreper did not support the last draft ePrivacy Regulation, as presented by the Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
