At its 113th plenary meeting held on Nov. 28, 2017, in Brussels, the Article 29 Data Protection Working Party adopted its EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Report, which renders an opinion on the annual review of Privacy Shield recently conducted by the European Commission and the U.S. Department of Commerce. The WP29’s report articulates a set of concerns regarding both the commercial aspects of the Privacy Shield as well as U.S. surveillance laws regarding access to data for law enforcement and national security purposes. It also offers up what the WP29 would like to see in terms of remedies and some deadlines for their implementation. Should these remedies not be addressed, writes IAPP Westin Fellow Muge Fazlioglu, CIPP/US, the report makes clear WP29 will take legal action.
