28.11.2019

Presentation of the ELI-ALI Principles at the German Consumer Rights Days 2019

The Principles were also the focus of attention on several occasions at the German Consumer Rights Days 2019 at the German Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection with presentations by ELI President Christiane Wendehorst, ELI members Axel Metzger and Michael Grünberger, and Policy Officer at the European Commission, Malte Beyer-Katzenberger. In particular, the ‘co-generated data’ approach was discussed as a possible first step for general principles on data access rights. Several parts of the Principles with regard to ‘data transactions’ and ‘data rights’ have already been submitted to the ALI Council, which will discuss the draft Principles on 17 January 2020.
