The first review of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield agreement will take place in September 2017. Speaking in Washington, European Union Justice Commissioner Věra Jourová confirmed she and U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross agreed upon the September review date. "This will be an important milestone where we need to check that everything is in place and working well," Jourová said. "If we want to further consolidate this new transatlantic bridge, we need the active engagement and contribution of all interested parties to the review." The EU Parliament's LIBE Committee recently declared that Privacy Shield is "inadequate" by a narrow margin. During her speech Friday, Jourová also touched upon the Umbrella Agreement, e-evidence, online hate speech, and the General Data Protection Regulation.
