European Commission Issues Guidance on Data Transfers Post-Schrems

The European Commission has published guidelines for EU-US data transfer after the invalidation of the Safe Harbor framework. The Commission explained that the Safe Harbor case "underlined the importance of fundamental right to data protection." The Commission also emphasized the ongoing role of the independent data protection agencies and the Article 29 Working Party. Negotiators are attempting to create a revised arrangement. NGOs have said that fundamental rights must be protected in all data transfers. In testimony before Congress, EPIC recommended several updates to US privacy law. EPIC's Marc Rotenberg said "these changes will benefit consumers and businesses on both sides of the Atlantic."
