ePrivacy Regulation will not come into force until 2019

The controversial ePrivacy Regulation, which was originally due to come into force in May 2018, will only come in 2019, as reported by W&V on 22 November 2017.

The German government shares the industry’s concerns about the ePrivacy Regulation. Key points of the regulation are, for example, the rules for cookie tracking and e-mail marketing. Just at the beginning of November, the EU Parliament adopted the draft regulation with 318 votes. 

But both the content and the original timetable are now generating new discussions. Please find more information here.
