Statement from BSA | The Software Alliance on Today's Safe Harbor Announcement by the Article 29 Working Party

WASHINGTON — October 16, 2015 — At a time when companies are seeking much needed clarity, we are beyond disappointed that the Article 29 Working Party failed to embrace the opportunity to provide this necessary clarity to the nearly 5,000 data processors, and the hundreds of millions of customers who rely on their services, in both the EU and the United States. The Working Party's call to action at all levels to seek solutions is indeed a necessary and urgently needed step, and we look forward to our continued work with US and European officials on these efforts.
