Developers Alliance and The Information Technology Industry Council, in collaboration with the Computer & Communications Industry Association and BSA – The Software Alliance, present decisive recommendations to EU co-legislators, targeting remaining issues within the Cyber Resilience Act proposal.
July 12, 2023 – The four industry associations urge EU lawmakers to pay attention to the following:
- consistency with other applicable legislation
- a clearer and narrower scope for the regulation
- a more proportionate, risk-based approach to determining the risk level of a product with digital elements
- less burdensome reporting obligations that don’t increase cyber risk
- avoiding disproportionate or impossible obligations
The recommendations can be read here*
The following quote can be attributed to Karina Stan, Director of EU Policy of the Developers Alliance:
“While appreciating the efforts of both the European Parliament and the Council to improve cyber resilience through the Cyber Resilience Act, there are still several issues that need more attention. Our recommendations provide a clear map of these issues. The regulation needs to be feasible for all businesses that are in scope, from software developers to hardware manufacturers, and to benefit consumers as well.”
