BSA Welcomes Commission's Report on EU-US Privacy Shield Annual Review

BRUSSELS – 23 October 2019 – BSA | The Software Alliance welcomes the conclusions of the European Commission’s report on the EU-US Privacy Shield third annual review, which was released earlier today. The report confirms that the Privacy Shield remains a trusted mechanism for companies and individuals alike, as the US continues to ensure an adequate level of protection for EU personal data transferred under the Privacy Shield.

“Today’s global economy depends on the rapid, seamless, and secure movement of data across borders. Companies of all sizes and across all sectors must be able to rely on robust mechanisms such as the Privacy Shield to do business across the Atlantic, particularly against the current backdrop of ongoing legal challenges to international data transfer mechanisms,” said Thomas Boué, BSA Director General, Policy – EMEA.

There are two ongoing separate legal challenges before the European Court of Justice, one against the EU-US Privacy Shield and the other against the Standard Contractual Clauses. BSA ӏ The Software Alliance is an amicus curiae in both cases.
