The Commission of the European Communities has submitted on 27 July 1990 a proposal (COM(90) 314) for a Council Directive concerning the protection of personal data and privacy in the context of public digital telecommunications networks, in particular the integrated services digital network (ISDN) and public digital mobile networks. This Directive provides for the harmonization of the provisions required to ensure an equal level of protection of privacy in the Community and to provide for the free movement of telecommunications equipment and services within and between Member States. It requires that the Member States shall adopt the necessary specific provisions in order to guarantee the protection of personal data and privacy in the telecommunications sector and that they bring into force by 1 January 1993 the laws, regulations, and administrative provisions necessary for them to comply with this Directive.
