EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Background
Under the strict privacy laws of the European Economic Area and Switzerland, 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. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks. U.S. companies can elect to participate in the Frameworks (i.e., self-certify to the U.S. Department of Commerce) as long as they adhere to the rigorous requirements of the Frameworks.
In July 2016, the European Union announced its approval of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as a valid legal mechanism to comply with EU requirements when transferring personal data from the European Economic Area to the United States (replacing the former U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework). In January 2017, the Swiss government announced its approval of the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as a valid legal mechanism to comply with Swiss requirements when transferring personal data from Switzerland to the United States (replacing the former U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework). The revised Frameworks reflect the trend towards stronger 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 Frameworks, as the new Frameworks are under increased scrutiny by European and U.S. regulators.
