The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is asking Apple and Google to remove TikTok from their app stores. Their reason? National security concerns surrounding TikTok’s parent company, ByteDance.

In a letter to the CEOs of Apple and Google, the FCC Commissioner described ByteDance as “required by law to comply with [Chinese government] surveillance demands.” The commissioner, citing a new report, said that ByteDance’s Chinese staff accessed US TikTok users’ data on multiple occasions.

US officials have expressed concerns that Chinese government access to US users’ data or communications could put national security at risk. The FCC plays no role in regulating internet-based services such as app stores. Previous attempts by the US government to ban TikTok from US app stores have been unsuccessful.

The same day as the report, TikTok announced that it had migrated its US user data to cloud servers in the United States. They also stated that they would eventually be deleting backups of its US user data from its own servers.

The FCC Commissioner responded that he was not assured by the announcement because “it says nothing about where that data can be accessed from.”

The European Commission wants to end “fast fashion” by 2030. It announced a vast expansion of

eco-design rules that could apply to any product, starting with textiles. The EU executive also wants large companies to disclose how much unsold stock they send to landfill, as part of a wide-ranging plan to crack down on throwaway culture.

EU eco-design rules, which set energy efficiency standards for a host of consumer goods, like toasters and washing machines, will also cover durability and recyclability. Manufacturers, for example, may have to use a certain amount of recycled content in their goods, or curb the use of materials that make them hard to recycle.

The average European throws away 11kg of clothes, shoes and other fabric goods every year. Textiles are the fourth-largest emitter of greenhouse gas emissions as well as consuming vast amounts of water and raw materials. If the proposals come into force, they could have a big impact around the world, as nearly three-quarters of clothing and household textiles consumed in the EU are imported from elsewhere.

The proposals form part of the EU’s “circular economy” plan, which aims to lighten Europe’s ecological footprint on the world’s natural resources. The commission also wants to amend EU consumer law in an attempt to outlaw greenwashing and planned obsolescence. Describing a product as “environmentally friendly” or “eco” will be banned when the substance of the claim cannot be demonstrated.

Companies will also be obliged to tell consumers about features that shorten a product’s lifespan, for instance, software that stops or downgrades the functionality of smartphones and laptops over time.
