The Irish Times reports Ireland's Data Protection Commission reached a preliminary decision to potentially suspend Facebook's data transfers between the EU and the U.S. The DPC has given Meta, Facebook's parent company, 28 days to respond to a revised decision before it is presented to members of the European Data Protection Board under Article 60 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation. A spokesperson for Data Protection Commissioner Helen Dixon said the decision is likely to be filed to supervisory authorities in April. In its response to the decision, Meta said, "this is not a final decision" and that the DPC has "asked for further legal submissions," but added, a halt on transfers "would be damaging" to businesses and individuals.
