EU-US Umbrella Agreement gets green light

Today the EU-US “Umbrella Agreement”, the data protection framework for EU-US law enforcement cooperation, received a green light from the European Parliament without referral to the CJEU. Importantly, the Agreement will provide EU citizens with judicial redress rights in US courts in case of breaches, a key point for the EU during the long negotiation of the deal.

On 24 November the EU-US Umbrella Agreement was backed by a large majority in the Civil Liberties Committee.
