Dear members, dear colleagues,


The forthcoming UIA seminar on “European and Global Challenges of Personal Data Protectionwill take place in the European Court of Justice (ECJ) in Luxembourg from September 19 to 20, 2014.


The seminar will be held under the patronage of Mr. Xavier BETTEL, Prime Minister of Luxembourg and Mr. Vassilios SKOURIS, President of the European Court of Justice. The President of Group 29, Mrs. Isabelle FALQUE-PIERROTIN and Mr. Paul NEMITZ from the European commission will introduce the seminar.


By two major rulings, on  April 8, 2014 declaring Directive 2006/24/EC on data retention to be invalid and on May 13, 2014 in recognizing the right to be forgotten being applicable also for Internet search engine operators, the ECJ has asserted its role as the gatekeeper of data protection.


In the course of the seminar, we shall offer a legal and practical approach regarding the principal evolutions of existing rules to help companies and lawyers to better understand them.


Download the programme and the registration form.



Register online or fill out the registration form and send it back to the UIA or fax it.



A limited number of hotel rooms has been pre-booked for this seminar. All the information is available in the programme and on the UIA website.

We look forward to welcoming you to Luxembourg!
