The Article 29 Working Party has released two forms related to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield agreement. The rules of procedure for the "Informal Panel of EU DPAs" provides a road map for handling complaints under Shield. "The panel is competent for providing binding advice to the US organisations following unresolved complaints from individuals about the handling of personal information that has been transferred from" the EU under Shield. According to the document, the panel will attempt to provide advice for a complaint within 60 days after receipt. The group also released a form for submitting commercial-related complaints to EU DPAs. Though the use of the form "remains optional," the document requests all of the necessary data for completing a request. In related news, the high stakes Facebook-Ireland court case continues. The Irish Times reports a lawyer for Facebook has argued the EU would face an "enormous" crisis if it does not trade with countries that do not match its data-protection standards.
