Facilitating cross-border data flow in the digital single market: study on data location restrictions - SMART 2015/0054.
1. The main objective of the study is to analyse legal and non-legal barriers in Member State practices which hinder the free flow of data within the European Union in order to contribute to the sustainable development of a digital single market.2. The study will elaborate a methodology which will review and map compliance obligations set out in various levels (i.e. legal acts issued at different levels, etc.) within the European Union (in all 28 Member States).3. The study will provide an analytical framework that allows for the definition of various concepts of barriers to the free flow of data (A. compliance obligations such as A.1 direct barriers and A.2 indirect barriers and B. requirements not related to a compliance obligation such as user preferences e.g. sentiments and fears towards cloud computing (cloud adoption)).4. The analytical framework should also be complemented with examples from Member States that should be identified in (i) different sectors in order to determine where they are frequently used and classified against; (ii) data types; (iii) the type and level of legislative documents which set them out.5. The study will also examine a common understanding of data requirements in Member States in order to determine to which type of data these requirements are usually referred to and understand their required assurances from legal, technological and enforcement perspectives.6. The study will analyse and provide quantitative estimates of the barriers of cloud computing identified in Member States such as formal requirements (i.e. data location restrictions) and the cost and benefits due to the transition from formal to functional requirements (i.e. access to data for audit purposes or application of sufficient security measures, etc.).7. Recommend functional requirements (e.g. security measures) which could replace formal requirements (such as data location requirements) in order to facilitate cross-border data flow.8. The study will provide recommendations on new policy concepts to facilitate cross-border data flow in the European Union.
