A leaked draft, the Council of the European Union and the European Parliament have agreed on several amendments to three chapters of the draft ePrivacy Regulation. The amendments relate to Chapter III (End-Users' Rights to Control Electronic Communications), Chapter V (Remedies, Liability and Penalties), and Chapter VI (Final Provisions).

The second trilogue will be held on 18th November.
