EU-U.S. Privacy Shield (formerly Safe Harbor) Background

Under the strict privacy laws of the European Economic Area, personal data may only be made available to U.S. companies under specific, limited circumstances, including where the U.S. organization is certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. U.S. companies can elect to participate in the Framework (i.e., self-certify to the U.S. Department of Commerce) as long as they adhere to the Framework’s rigid requirements.

The Privacy Shield Framework has been recognized under European law since mid-2016 (replacing the former U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework). The revised framework reflects the trend towards tighter privacy regulation in Europe. Therefore, it’s more important than ever for U.S. companies to seek expert advice before certifying under the Privacy Shield Framework, as the new framework is under increased scrutiny by European and U.S. regulators.

For more information on the requirements for EU-U.S. Privacy Shield (and U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor) compliance, visit the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield website and the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor website. For help complying with the Framework’s complex requirements, contact VeraSafe today.
