Irish regulator sees U.S. data transfers decided on 'case by case' basis

Thu, 16th Jul 2020 14:53

DUBLIN, July 16 (Reuters) - Ireland's Data Protection
Commissioner, the lead data regulator for Facebook in the
European Union, on Thursday "strongly welcomed" a ruling by
Europe's highest court that a transatlantic data transfer deal
was invalid.

Data Protection Commissioner Helen Dixon, who also regulates
several of the largest U.S. technology companies in the EU due
to their Irish headquarters, said the ruling provided regulators
with a "decisive statement of position" with regard to data
transfers to the United States.

She said her office, and the other national data regulators
in Europe, would now play a central role in deciding whether
specific data transfers need to be suspended with assessments to
be made on a "case by case basis".
