The European Union and U.S. officials have given final approval of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, which replaces the Safe Harbor invalidated by the Court of Justice of the European Union in October 2015. Like it predecessor, the Privacy Shield will allow organizations based in the United States to self-certify compliance with the Privacy Shield’s requirements permitting personal data of EU subjects to be transferred to the U.S., but with an enhanced enforcement regime, among other things.
