The Article 29 Working Party, the association of European Data Protection Commissioners, has said it will review the adequacy of the "Privacy Shield" proposal for transborder data flows. The Working Party said there must be (1) clear and precise rules, (2) a "necessary and proportionate" standard for data collection and access, (3) independent oversight, and (4) effective remedies for the individual. The Working Party also said it must first receive the relevant documents to assess the legal force of the arrangement and whether it will resolve "wider concerns raised by the Schrems judgement."
