European Commission Publishes Privacy Shield Documents

March 2, 2016

Free Webinar
3:00 p.m. (GMT)/10:00 a.m. (EST)

On February 29, 2016, the European Commission released the legal texts that will implement the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, as well as a communication summarizing the actions taken over the last few years to “restore trust in transatlantic data flows since the 2013 surveillance revelations.”

The documents include a draft adequacy decision, the Privacy Shield principles that companies will have to abide by, as well as written commitments by the U.S. government, to be published in the U.S. Federal Register, on the enforcement of the arrangement, including assurance on the safeguards and limitations concerning access to data by public authorities.
