12/04/2023 | US Government

The US Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration has opened a public consultation on the proposed EU-US Data Privacy Framework, the UK-US Adequacy Agreement (an extension of the EU-US framework) and the Swiss-US Data Privacy Framework Principles. The requests for comments cover four points:

  • Evaluate whether the proposed information collection is necessary for the proper functions of the Department, including whether the information will have practical utility.
  • Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the time and cost burden for this proposed collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used.
  • Evaluate ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected.
  • Minimise the reporting burden on those who are to respond, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

The consultation closes on 30 May.
