EU ePrivacy Regulation takes a big leap forward to adoption
The Council of the EU has made a surprise announcement that it has approved its negotiating position on the ePrivacy Regulation (i.e. the successor to the ePrivacy Directive), which will further reform EU cookie consent and communications content and metadata rules in the EU.
The process now is that the ePrivacy Regulation will be negotiated in trilogue negotiations between the Council of the EU and the European Parliament, with the European Commission facilitating / brokering those negotiations.
