Impact assessment report, executive summary and opinion of the Regulatory Scrutiny Board

This Impact Assessment accompanies the proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on data governance. It is the first of a set of measures announced in the 2020 European Strategy for Data. The instrument aims to stimulate the availability of data for use and to strengthen data governance mechanisms in the EU.


Study supporting the impact assessment on the Regulation on data governance and its executive summary

The study determines the impact of a number of possible policy options acting as stepping-stones enabling relevant stakeholders to build common data spaces and fully realise the benefits of increased data reuse. Following this, the study performed a Multi-Criteria Analysis to determine the preferred policy option for each topic, analysing the effectiveness, efficiency, coherence and legal and political feasibility and proportionality of each option. Lastly, the study identified policy packages (i.e. sets of policy options) to analyse impacts from a macroeconomic standpoint vis-à-vis the baseline.
