Digital Transformation: Orgalim position on the Data Act proposal
Published: 12 May 2022
Policies & Issues: Digital Transformation
Orgalim represents Europe’s technology industries, world leaders in connected products and production systems, which are becoming increasingly "intelligent" via data-based services. The transition to a data-driven economy is of paramount importance for the future growth and competitiveness of our industries.
We support the objective of fostering Europe’s data economy but question a number of the policy instruments proposed in the Data Act to achieve its intended objective. The extensive new design, transparency and data access obligations imposed on data holders (including manufacturers) will have substantial costs for them, especially for small and medium-sized enterprises.
