23/05/2022 | noyb

In an open letter from noyb, Max Schrems has written to five key stakeholders involved in the planned EU-US Trans-Atlantic Data Privacy Framework. The letter outlines several concerns that have come to light, which noyb believes raises questions over the stability of future European Commission adequacy agreements. 

The letter is addressed to the European Commissioner for justice, Didier Reynders,  US Secretary of Commerce, Gina Raimondo, Justice Advisor to the European Union Pauline Dubarry, European Data Protection Board Chair Andrea Jelinek and Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) chair Juan Fernando L√≥pez Aguilar.

The letter covers the following areas:

  • Applying a correct proportionality test on US surveillance law under Article 8 Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union (CFR)
  • Creating meaningful judicial redress under Article 47 CFR
  • The need to update commercial privacy protections
  • The future of international data transfers
  • Reaction to any new adequacy decision
