In a plenary session, at the request of the federal state of Hamburg, the German Bundesrat has debated a resolution appealing to the federal government to promptly adopt a draft law enabling the data protection authorities of the Bund and the Länder to implement the ECJ decision on Safe Harbor by means of rights of action. The request has, for now, been passed to the Committee for Justice and Home Affairs. Hamburg had justified its request by stating that the ECJ decision further strengthened the role of data protection authorities.
