eIDAS 2.0: Comments before the start of Trilogue

Public comments of epicenter.works about the current draft proposals for the reform of the eIDAS Regulation (Digital Identity, Electronic Identity, European Digital Identity Wallet). This policy brief analyses the first reading Position of the European Parliament and contrasts it with the Commission proposal and Council General Approach. We highlight the most important safeguards from a fundamental rights and data protection perspective.

We already provided analyses of the Council General Approach, the ITRE compromise amendments, the Architecture Reference Framework of the eIDAS expert working group and the original Commission proposal. In an open letter 39 civil society organisations, academics and independent experts from all around the world have called on the European Parliament to ensure the eIDAS reform respects fundamental rights and creates a trusted environment for user data.
