EU-US Cross Border Transfers, Privacy Shield, Model Clauses, and Binding Corporate Rules

Program Number: 2652 Presenter: Carolyn Krampitz, Esq., David A. Zetoony, Esq.

Multinational companies and United States-based service providers have long struggled with transferring information from the European Union to the United States, and balancing legal compliance with practical need.

Although there remains uncertainty concerning how long the different methods for transferring information will continue to be recognized, with the approval of Privacy Shield, we have finally reached at least a temporary period of stability.

Note: The Privacy Shield after the Safe Harbor is also the subject of a recent program, EU-U.S. Data Transfer—Life after the Safe Harbor under the “Privacy Shield” (2605), available now on
