U.S. Chamber of Commerce and BUSINESSEUROPE letter on Safe Harbor

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and BUSINESSEUROPE are deeply concerned about the impact of the recent European Court of Justice Judgement invalidating Safe Harbor. In this context, we urge you to expeditiously reach agreement on a strengthened Safe Harbor framework that takes into account the concerns raised by the ECJ ruling and enables data transfers between the EU and US. 

We further note the recent statement by the Article 29 Working Party, calling for a resolution by end January 2016
and emphasising the need to finalise discussions and announce a resolution without undue delay, as well as the recent Communication by the European Commission aiming to provide guidance on transatlantic data transfers.
