EU justice chief confident new US data pact will survive legal challenge
EU Justice Commissioner Didier Reynders gives a new EU-U.S. data pact a “seven or eight out of 10 chance” of withstanding a legal challenge.
The new pact, which Reynders said is likely to be finalized before July, is the result of over three years of negotiations to revive transatlantic data flows after the two previous pacts were annulled by the European Court of Justice.
Reynders said he was confident the new pact addresses EU judges’ concerns over overreach by U.S. security and intelligence agencies and will be able to withstand a legal challenge that he said is inevitable.
