EU to Allow Free Flow of Non-Personal Data Across Bloc

The European Union Council recently approved a new set of regulations that will help the free movement of non-personal data, like that generated by IoT, AI, and machine learning, across the EU.

The new rules, which will take effect in six months time, are expected to boost the data economy and the development of emerging technologies such as cross-border autonomous systems and artificial intelligence, according to an official statement.

Additionally, data localisation restrictions imposed by member states on the geographical location for storing or processing non-personal data will no longer hold, unless such restrictions are justified on grounds of public security. This will allow authorities of member states to gain access to data even when it is located in another country.
