The FRA took the earlier opinions of the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) and the Article 29 Working Group on the proposed directive as a point of departure and designed its opinion to complement them. This expert opinion raises fundamental rights concerns from a broader fundamental rights perspective in relation to the proposal focusing on the prohibition of discrimination, the requirements of necessity and proportionality for fundamental rights compliance and effective supervision to ensure the rights of passengers. The opinion will feed into the discussions taking place in the European Parliament.
