Right to oblivion to five years for persons declared cured of cancer
No. 651 – Bill to apply the right to oblivion to five years for persons declared cured of cancer – registered at the Presidency of the National Assembly on 7 February 2018
Patients who have been diagnosed with cancer are told by a doctor that they are cured after five years without relapse. These people face difficulties in the context of insurance or loans. A right to be forgotten has already been introduced in February 2017. However, the lapse of time before benefiting from the bill is ten years. This proposed legislation aims to reduce this time to five years.
“In the fourth paragraph of Article L. 1141-5 of the Public Health Code, the word:” ten “is replaced by the word” five “.
