Dear Secretary Ross:
The undersigned associations represent thousands of U.S. companies of all sizes and from a broad range of industry sectors. Despite the many differences in the products and services we create and in the customers we serve, we are united by the need to transfer data across international borders.
We are writing in relation to yesterday’s (July 16, 2020) Court of Justice of the European Union (“CJEU”) decision striking down the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, a vital legal mechanism used to transfer data between the U.S. and the EU, upon which small and medium sized businesses rely heavily.
