    Feedback from Europeans for Safe Connections

    We “Europeans for Safe Connections” welcome this initiative and we would like to add some important improvements.

    Article 10 is about obligations of manufacturers. Among the obligations there is also to publish INFORMATION AND INSTRUCTIONS TO THE USER further defined in Annex II – that is the list of information that the product with digital elements shall be accompanied by.

    We suggest to add this information to the list for the user to know:

    — If the device communicates with other devices or is connected to the Internet, the user is informed about the exact list of transmitted data, the frequency of data transmissions, the recipient of these data, what is the use of these data and also about the method of processing of these data and whether automated processes are used and what kind of them (e.g. artificial intelligence, neural networks, expert systems).

    Annex I defines ESSENTIAL CYBERSECURITY REQUIREMENTS

    We suggest to add this requirement to the list:

    — If the device communicates with other devices or is connected to the Internet, the user can use as many functions as possible in an offline mode. When connected, all kinds of connections are equal: both wired and wireless.

    These suggestions are in line with the proposal 22 and proposal 7 of our european citizens’ initiative “Stop 5G — Stay connected but protected”

    Best regards
    Petra Bertová
