The European Parliament's Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs has published a motion for a resolution in relation to the EU-US Privacy Shield arrangement. Privacy Shield facilitates the lawful transfer of data between the EU and the US. The motion praises the improvements which Privacy Shield has made relative to the old Safe Harbour regime but states that "important questions remain" in relation to matters of commerce, national security and law enforcement, which could lead to a future legal challenge to the adequacy of the protection provided under Privacy Shield. The Committee expressed particular concern over the absence of a right to object to the processing of personal data by a US company that self-certifies under the Privacy Shield regime and the absence of effective remedies for individuals who wish to bring a claim through the regime. MEPs also criticised the lack of clarity over the indiscriminate collection of data by US intelligence agencies for the purposes of mass surveillance which, in the opinion of the Committee, stems in part from the lack of a uniform definition of "bulk surveillance". The Committee concluded its motion by calling for a joint review of Privacy Shield by EU and US authorities on an annual basis.
