Leaked Extracts on Working Party Opinion Indicate Approval of Privacy Shield May Not Be Imminent

Today, alleged extracts from the impending Article 29 Working Party Opinion on the adequacy of the Privacy Shield were leaked.  These extracts indicate that a number of clarifications on the Privacy Shield documents will be required before the Working Party can confirm that the Privacy Shield, in its view, ensures a level of protection that is essentially equivalent to that in the EU.  The full opinion is due to be published on Wednesday 13 April, and will form part of the package for consideration by the European Commission.
