Abstract / Description

The EU and the US are trying to reach an agreement on exchanges of personal data in the area of police and judicial cooperation in criminal matters, including in particular serious organised crime and terrorism.
Crucial issues in this regard are:
− Whether the US can provide adequate assurance to the EU (and through the EU to the MSs) that any personal data received from the EU1 will be treated properly, in accordance with European data protection principles; and
− What the effect of such an agreement would be on exisiting EU-US and Member States-US agreements in this field.
The US Ambassador to the EU made a presentation on the above issues to the LIBE Ctee hearing in Brussels on 25 October 2010. This note contains summaries of some of his remarks, with comments from the author of this note, who gave a later presentation at the same hearing.
