EU Confirms Recognition of EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework

The system provides data privacy that facilitates transatlantic commerce.

The European Union (EU) officially confirmed the adequacy of the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework (DPF), approving it for use by their nation’s businesses. The framework is an updated data privacy system that ensures companies in the U.S. and the EU comply with each other’s data privacy laws.

European Commissioner for Justice Didier Reynders met with Attorney General Merrick Garland and Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo at the Justice Department to make the announcement, launching the implementation process necessary to incorporate the system into transatlantic commerce.

“To meet the needs of businesses, the Commerce Department launched the DPF program website today, giving companies a one-stop-shop where they can sign up for the DPF program and get important information about its benefits,” said Secretary Raimondo. “Now, businesses – large and small – will be able to access a streamlined and affordable mechanism to transfer data between our jurisdictions. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Raimondo as she collaborates on transatlantic commerce.
  • For Attorney General Garland as he participates in the privacy protection of data.
  • For U.S. and EU commerce officials as they promote the use of the data privacy framework.
