Statement on the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Agreement

Washington, D.C. – Today, Internet Association President and CEO Michael Beckerman issued the following statement on the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Agreement:

“Internet companies have mechanisms in place to effectuate data transfers beyond the Safe Harbor, but smaller companies and consumers both in the EU as well as in the U.S. could experience significant challenges going forward. In light of this far reaching European Court of Justice ruling, the Internet Association calls on the U.S. and EU to join forces to implement a revised Safe Harbor framework and to issue interim guidance to stakeholders pending this implementation. The Internet industry has consistently supported surveillance reform, including the Judicial Redress Act which would extend certain U.S. privacy protections to EU citizens. We reiterate our support for this legislation and look forward to its swift passage through Congress.”
