BEUC, the association of European consumer organizations, has published a Position Paper on Data Protection supporting a new European Union privacy initiative. BEUC states that the proposed Privacy Regulation "addresses the main challenges and the shortcomings of the current framework with the aim of enhancing the rights of data subjects and restoring control over the processing of their own personal data," but BEUC cautions that "several provisions still need to be clarified to ensure the EU framework is effective and becomes the global standard for data protection." The Trans Atlantic Consumer Dialogue, a coalition of US and European consumer groups, has also expressed support for the EU initiative. For more information, see EPIC: EU Data Protection Directive.
