On July 3, US Commerce Secretary Raimondo delivered some welcome news to US business: the US had fulfilled the European Commission’s requirements for the EU-US Data Privacy Framework (DPF), easing pressure on trans-Atlantic personal flows after three years of uncertainty. By July 17, the Commerce Department had launched a new website for US businesses to complete the DPF certification process. The DPF shares much of the DNA of its predecessor (the Privacy Shield), requiring US businesses to adhere to a set of privacy principles and practices designed to ensure that EU citizens receive a level of personal data protection in the US on par with EU privacy protections.
