APGDA Briefing on the Digital Economy Act

APGDA Briefing on the Digital Economy Act

The APPG on Data Analytics have prepared a briefing on the new Digital Economy Act with a particular focus on issues facing the 'big data' industry.

In the final days before parliament was dissolved for the 2017 general election, the House of Commons and House of Lords engaged in 'ping-pong' to finalise and pass legislation before the end of the parliament. The wide-reaching Digital Economy Bill which was under scrutiny at the time, therefore became the Digital Economy Act.

Please see the briefing document for a summary of the broad act on data analytics.
