USA: DoJ issues statement on EU-US DPF, highlights qualifying state designation effective

On July 10, 2023, the US Office of Privacy and Civil Liberties under the U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) issued a statement on the European Commission's adequacy decision for the EU-US Data Privacy Framework (DPF). In particular, the DoJ highlighted that the Commission's adequacy decision brings into effect the U.S. Attorney General's (AG) Designation of the EU, and Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein under the European Economic Area (EEA) as qualifying states pursuant to Section 3(f) of Executive Order 14086 on Enhancing Safeguards for United States Signal Intelligence Activities. Specifically, the DoJ provided that EU/EEA individuals may now submit complaints to obtain redress for alleged violations of law in connection with US signals intelligence activities affecting their personal data transferred to the US.
