Major Industry Groups Call For Guidance And Transition Period After Safe Harbour Ruling

The Application Developers Alliance, together with more than 20 industry groups, sent a joint letter to European Commission President Juncker following the Court of Justice of the European Union’s (CJEU) recent invalidation of the EU Safe Harbour Decision. 

Together, we call for clear legal guidance and a sufficient transition period for companies and authorities to adapt their practices. In a nutshell,  we keep on pushing for a harmonised implementation of the judgment, which makes it easier for companies to benefit from trans-Atlantic data trade. Finally, the letter underscores the importance to Europe’s economy of commercial data flows and calls for the conclusion of new and strengthened Safe Harbour framework.
