Digital Transformation: Orgalim input to the European Commission consultation on the Data Act

Published: 29 June 2021

Policies & Issues: Digital Transformation

Orgalim supports the facilitation of data access and use in business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-government (B2G) situations. Orgalim believes that the role of the legislator in this field should be limited only to measures that would encourage and foster B2B and B2G data sharing.

Freedom of contract as the guiding principle should be at the heart of any new initiative. In addition, the intellectual property rights of companies need to be protected.

Orgalim sees the untapped potential in smart contracts to facilitate automated data sharing and pooling at scale, while enforcing usage restrictions.

Last but not least, we need to continue to facilitate international data transfers that are very important in an interconnected digital economy.
