European Cookie Law Implementation Survey, June 2015

Article 5.3 of Directive 2002/58/EC, which regulates the use of cookies and similar, was amended in 2009. The amended legislation now requires consent to be given by users before most cookies can be stored on a user’s computer. The change was due to be implemented in the national law of Member States by May 2011.

This document sets out the status of implementation around the 28 Member States of the European Union in April-May 2015. From the responses, it can be seen that 25 countries have implemented the change, 1 has legislation that implements the change but such implementation is considered incomplete; and 2 have not implemented the change and have no concrete plans yet to do so.
