Schrems II Case: CJEU Invalidates EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework

On July 16th, the CJEU issued the Schrems II judgment which invalidates the Privacy Shield Decision and provides clarifications on SCCs.

A lot of noise and “fog” amongst organizations, particularly on the effects of the Schrems II judgement. This means that EU organizations should not be able anymore to rely on EU-U.S. Privacy Shield for transferring data to U.S.-based organizations.

It is, however, expected for the EU supervisory authorities and EDPB to react soon and to shed more light on this issue for the organizations.

Relevant highlights:

  • What does it mean that the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield was invalidated?
  • What about the ongoing transfers under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield?
  • Is there any grace period for becoming compliant as regards ongoing transfers under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield?
  • Are standard contractual clauses (SCCs) still valid?
  • What should organizations expect for future?
  • What should organizations do next?
