The European Parliament has passed a non-binding resolution calling for the European Commission to re-open negotiations with the relevant US bodies in relation to the EU-US Privacy Shield. The resolution also calls for the full implementation of the recommended amendments to the Commission’s draft Privacy Shield adequacy decision (Draft Decision) put forward by the Article 29 Working Party (Art 29 WP). The Opinion, previously published by the Art 29 WP, recommended changes to the Draft Decision in order to ensure that the data of European citizens remains properly protected and that concerns surrounding the access of European data by law enforcement and government agencies were adequately addressed.
