BEERG Newsletter - EU/US Data Transfers: Schrems warns EU + US on planned framework

Derek Mooney writes: As we reported in BEERG Newsletter (#11) on March 25 President Joe Biden and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced that the US and EU had reached a political agreement in principle on a new "Trans-Atlantic Data Privacy Framework" though neither side set out the terms of the new Framework in legal documents or proposed a timing for the passage and adoption of the Framework.

Responding to the ‘agreement in principle via an open letter published this week, Max Schrems and “” warned U.S. and EU officials that the announced framework risks “sharing the same fate” as its two predecessors: Safe Harbour and Privacy Shield 1.0 “unless substantive (legislative) reforms are conducted in the United States”. The specific reforms he wishes  the US government to make are detailed in this article by DLA Piper which can be found HERE on Lexology.
