Governments throughout Europe are in the process of determining their stance in relation to the draft Data Protection Regulation.

If you have comments on or concerns about the proposed new framework, this is an excellent opportunity to voice them and in doing so, to participate directly in the shaping of the new Data Protection framework.
Responses are due by 20 April 2012. Further information can be found at http://justice.belgium.be/fr/nouvelles/autres_communiques/news_2012-03-12.jsp
