Regulation (EU) 2018/1807 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 14 November 2018 on a framework for the free flow of non-personal data in the European Union

Regulation (EU) 2018/1807 of 14 November 2018, which deals with “non personal data” in the framework of the EU’s digital single market strategy; it aims at removing obstacles to data mobility and the internal single market. In particular, it prohibits data localization requirements by place EU Member States in point of storage or processing of non-personal data, except on grounds of public security.

The scope of the Regulation (Article 2- Scope)  is “to the processing of electronic data other than personal data in the Union, which is:


provided as a service to users residing or having an establishment in the Union, regardless of whether the service provider is established or not in the Union; or


carried out by a natural or legal person residing or having an establishment in the Union for its own needs.


As explained here, the approved Regulation does not have an impact on the application of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as it does not cover personal data.

Member States will have 6 months to apply the new Regulation.
