Business lacks certainty despite official adoption of EU-US Privacy Shield


"The European Commission (EC) has officially adopted the EU-US Privacy Shield framework to protect transatlantic personal data transfers to the US, but that may not be the end of the controversy.

Andrus Ansip, EC vice president for the Digital Single Market, said the framework will protect the personal data of European Union (EU) citizens and provide clarity for businesses.

'We have worked hard with all our partners in Europe and in the US to get this deal right and to have it done as soon as possible. Data flows between our two continents are essential to our society and economy – we now have a robust framework ensuring these transfers take place in the best and safest conditions,’ he said.

Věra Jourová, commissioner for justice, consumers and gender equality, said the framework is a robust system to protect the personal data of Europeans and ensure legal certainty for businesses.”
