WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Chamber Executive Vice President and Head of International Affairs Myron Brilliant issued the following statement in response to President Biden’s executive order implementing the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework:
“Today’s executive order implementing the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework represents an important commitment to ensure stability, predictability, and accountability to data flows and the transatlantic relationship. These actions are critical to providing companies of all sizes the legal certainty they need to transfer, analyze, and utilize data on both sides of the Atlantic. Given the depth and breadth of the transatlantic economic partnership—and the volume of trade and investment facilitated by data transfers—this new framework between the U.S. and EU is vitally important.
“We are grateful for the tireless work of many across the U.S. government for their work on the executive order. Now it is time for the European Commission to ensure the Framework and accompanying data adequacy assessment are finalized and implemented expeditiously.”
