Guidance on Data Act

The European Commission offers a comprehensive overview on the Data Act, including its objectives and how it works in practice. This overview clarifies the concept of data holder in that the manufacturer can be the data holder but also that there can be more than one data holder.

The Data Act will become applicable on 12 September 2025.

The European Commission plans to issue and recommend by autumn 2025:

  • a set of model contractual terms to help businesses conclude data-sharing contracts that are fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (Chapters II and III of the Data Act). These terms will also provide guidance on reasonable compensation and the protection of trade secrets.
  • a set of non-binding standard contractual clauses for cloud computing contracts between cloud service users and providers.
