Statement of the Article 29 Working party on the consequences of the Schrems Judgement


On 2-3 February 2016, the Article 29 Working Party (WP29) met to discuss the consequences of
the CJEU judgment in the Schrems case for international transfers.

"The WP29 welcomes the fact of the conclusion of the negotiations between the EU and the U.S.
on the introduction of a "EU-U.S. Privacy Shield", which meets the deadline set by the WP29 in
its statement of 16 October. It looks forward to receive the relevant documents in order to know
precisely the content and the legal bindingness of the arrangement and to assess whether it can
answer the wider concerns raised by Schrems judgment as regards international transfers of
personal data."
