  • First Annual Privacy Shield Review to take place in September 2017

    One of the core principles of the EU-US Privacy Shield (" Privacy Shield ") is its Joint Review mechanism, which obliges the European Commission, the US Department of Commerce and the Federal Trade Commission to jointly review the functioning of the Privacy Shield on an annual basis, together with its national security and law enforcement aspects. The very first Joint Review is scheduled for September 2017.
