EDPB explains EU-US Data Privacy Framework implications

19/07/2023 | EDPB

The European Data Protection Board (EDPB) has adopted an information note for data transfers under the EU-US Data Privacy Framework (DPF) during its recent plenary session. The note explains the impact of the adequacy decision on transfers and the redress mechanisms it provides. The note clarifies that transfers based on adequacy decisions do not require supplementary measures, and individuals can submit complaints to their national data protection authorities (DPA) for the new redress mechanism in national security. Additionally, the EDPB has adopted a statement on the first review of the Japan Adequacy Decision, focusing on the commercial aspects of the decision and the convergence with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

In a related post, the IAPP has updated its DPF— Guidance and Resources page. The page includes the latest news, developments and analysis on the new framework.
