International: NOYB releases statement on draft adequacy decision for EU-US data flows

None of your business ('NOYB') released, on 13 December 2022, a statement in which it issued its first reaction to the draft adequacy decision for the EU-US Data Privacy Framework released by the European Commission on the same date. In particular, NOYB expressed the view that the changes introduced to US law by the Executive Order on Enhancing Safeguards for United States Signals Intelligence Activities ('the Executive Order') appear rather minimal. As such, NOYB concluded that any adequacy decision of the European Commission that is based on the Executive Order will likely not satisfy the Court of Justice of the European Union ('CJEU').

Notably, Max Schrems stated that, "We will analyse the draft [adequacy] decision in detail the next days. As the draft [adequacy] decision is based on the known Executive Order, I can't see how this would survive a challenge before the [CJEU]. It seems that the European Commission just issues similar decisions over and over again - in flagrant breach of our fundamental rights."
