Provenance and Timeline of the EU Cloud Code of Conduct
The EU Cloud Code of Conduct is the only Code which was drafted together with authorities of the European Union. The Code was developed in four years of collaboration between the European Commission, represented by DG Connect, and the cloud computing community, including industry. Furthermore, the involvement and advice of DG Justice and input by the Article 29 Working Party, which represents national Data Protection Authorities, contributed to the high level of expertise manifested in the Code.
Founded in February 2017 by the Alibaba Cloud, Fabasoft, IBM, Oracle, Salesforce and SAP, the General Assembly grew steadily and welcomed new members including Cisco, Google Cloud, TrustArc and Workday. We are also proud to have welcomed the Cloud Industry Forum as a supporter of the EU Cloud Code of Conduct.
