Art. 29 Working Party's opinion on the retention of data

The Art. 29 Working Party (established under Art. 29 Data Protection Directive) has published its recent opinion on the retention of data. It takes the following view:

Therefore, the Art. 29 Working Party proposes a uniform, European-wide implementation of the Directive. This approach should guarantee a harmonized application of the provisions of the Directive whilst respecting the highest level possible of protecting personal data. This should also be done with a view to reducing the considerable costs to be borne by the service providers when complying with the provisions of the Directive. In order to transpose the provisions of the Directive in a uniform way and to comply with the requirements of Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, Member States should implement adequate and specific safeguards.

We do not yet have the actual Directive, but here is the latest draft (pdf) to the retention of data. See also:
