Lawmakers have introduced an amendment to the Data Protection Regulation being debated in the European Parliament that could require U.S. companies to seek clearance from European officials before complying with U.S. law enforcement requests for data, The New York Times reports. The amendment responds to U.S. NSA revelations and could be decided as soon as Monday, when the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) will vote on amendments to the European data protection regulation. A coalition of U.S. consumer, privacy and public interest groups have written to European Parliament expressing support for the proposed regulation. Meanwhile, a European official said the proposed regulation will not modify Safe Harbor, though there has been widespread speculation over Safe Harbor’s future. Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati’s Christopher Kuner in Brussels told the Daily Dashboard that while Safe Harbor has always been controversial and that controversy has reached a fever pitch following the Snowden revelations, he “doubts very much it will really be suspended. I think what they will push for is to get some improvements … I think it’s more realistic that Safe Harbor will always have some utility.” (Registration may be required to access this story.)
