On 16 July 2020, the Court of Justice of the European Union handed down an historical judgment in the Schrems II case: the Court invalidated the decision of the European Commission on the adequacy of the protection provided by the EU-US Privacy Shield for transfers of European data to the US.

This clearly means that, among other things, companies in the European Union may no longer rely on the Privacy Shield to transfer data across the Atlantic. However, what are the consequences of this judgment for Norway and the other countries of the EFTA pillar of the EEA Agreement? The answer might be more complex (and perhaps different) than many probably expect.

PhD Fellow Luca Tosoni will address this topic at a lunch seminar of the Centre for European Law, where he will elaborate on the views he expressed on this issue in a short op-ed that was recently published on Rett24.
