Transatlantic Data Deal Challenged Before EU Court 📜
A fresh legal challenge has emerged regarding the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework, designed to address data transfer concerns between the EU and the United States. This challenge comes merely months after its inception, following the 2020 annulment of its predecessor, Privacy Shield.
The new challenge asserts that the agreement lacks adequate safeguards for fundamental rights, potentially violating the EU Charter and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Two legal challenges have been initiated, one aiming to suspend the agreement immediately, and the other targeting its content. 📄❌
Moreover, procedural issues have been raised, including the communication of the Data Privacy Framework exclusively in English to EU member states and its absence from the EU’s Official Journal. 📢📚
This legal development reopens the debate over the delicate balance between national security and data privacy in transatlantic data sharing.
