DIGITALEUROPE’s reaction to the Irish High Court decision to refer the Max Schrems-II privacy case to the European Court of Justice

DIGITALEUROPE acknowledges that the Irish High Court referred the Max Schrems-II privacy case to the European Court of Justice (CJEU). The referral to the CJEU will prolong the period of uncertainty for international data transfers from the EU.

DIGITALEUROPE is pleased to have participated in the Irish High Court proceedings and we will continue to advise the CJEU in the next stages, as permitted. Industry will continue using the existing mechanisms for data transfers, which remain valid at this point of time.

In that regard, DIGITALEUROPE welcomes the clear cooperation between the EU and US administrations, as evidenced by the additional safeguards on the US side since the initiation of the complaint and the collaboration in the recent first annual review of Privacy Shield.
