New “Simplifications” bill: Modifications to the Privacy Code

On the 16th of October 2012 the Italian Council of Ministers approved the bill “New Provisions for Administration simplifications in Favour of Private Citizens and Businesses”.

The content, which will now follow parliamentary procedure in order to be approved, impacts on various sectors with measures aimed at simplifying business activity.

The provision according to which the Data Protection Code does not apply to those who process data in the course of business activity, even if of an individual nature, is particularly worthy of note and is likely to lead to lively debate.

The Data Protection Authority has already expressed grave doubts on the impact that this provision will have if finally approved.
