The Data Governance Act (DGA) has yet to be passed. However, in the trialogue of 30 November 2021, the Council and the European Parliament agreed on a compromise. In this four-column document, the compromise can be found in the fourth column. After an agreement in the trilogue, an EU legal act is usually also adopted in this agreed version.
Chapter IV of the DGA deals with "data altruism". The term is defined in Art. 2 (10) DGA:
"‘data altruism’ means voluntary sharing of data based on consent by data subjects to process personal data pertaining to them, or permissions of other data holders to allow the use of their non-personal data without seeking or receiving a reward that goes beyond a compensation related to the costs they incur making their data available, for purposes of general interest, defined in accordance with national law where applicable, such as healthcare, combating climate change, improving mobility, facilitating the establishment of official statistics, improving public services , public policy making or scientific research purposes in the general interest"
The Tiles on this page show the obligations arising from this chapter. There are 48 obligations in total:
- 30 obligations for data altruism organisations
- 8 obligations of the new national supervisory authorities to be created
- 4 obligations of the EU Commission
- 6 obligations of the Member States
Note: The 68 obligations of the GDPR continue to exist alongside this.
