SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The EU–U.S. Privacy Shield Framework was designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) and the European Commission (Commission) to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce. On July 12, 2016, the Commission deemed the EU–U.S. Privacy Shield Framework (Privacy Shield) adequate to enable data transfers under EU law, and on August 1, 2016, the DOC began accepting selfcertifications from U.S. companies to join the program (81 FR 47752; July 22, 2016). For more information on the Privacy Shield, visit www.privacyshield.gov. As described in Annex I of the Privacy Shield, the DOC and the Commission have committed to implement an arbitration mechanism to provide European individuals with the ability to invoke binding arbitration to determine, for residual claims, whether an organization has violated its obligations under the Privacy Shield. Organizations voluntarily self-certify to the Privacy Shield and, upon certification, the commitments the organization has made to comply with the Privacy Shield become legally enforceable under U.S. law. Organizations that self-certify to the Privacy Shield commit to binding arbitration of residual claims if the individual chooses to exercise that option. Under the arbitration option, a Privacy Shield Panel (consisting of one or three arbitrators, as agreed by the parties) has the authority to impose individual-specific, non-monetary equitable relief (such as access, correction, deletion, or return of the individual’s data in question) necessary to remedy the violation of the Privacy Shield only with respect to the individual. The parties will select the arbitrators from the list of arbitrators described below. The DOC and the European Commission seek to develop a list of at least 20 arbitrators. To be eligible for inclusion on the list, applicants must be admitted to practice law in the United States and have expertise in both U.S. privacy law and EU data protection law. Applicants shall not be subject to any instructions from, or be affiliated with, any Privacy Shield organization, or the U.S., EU, or any EU Member State or any other governmental authority, public authority or enforcement authority.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework was designed by the U.S. 
Department of Commerce (DOC) and the European Commission (Commission) 
to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to 
comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal 
data from the European Union to the United States in support of 
transatlantic commerce. On July 12, 2016, the Commission deemed the EU-
U.S. Privacy Shield Framework (Privacy Shield) adequate to enable data 
transfers under EU law, and on August 1, 2016, the DOC began accepting 
self-certifications from U.S. companies to join the program (81 FR 
47752; July 22, 2016). For more information on the Privacy Shield, 
visit www.privacyshield.gov.
    As described in Annex I of the Privacy Shield, the DOC and the 
Commission have committed to implement an arbitration mechanism to 
provide European individuals with the ability to invoke binding 
arbitration to determine, for residual claims, whether an organization 
has violated its obligations under the Privacy Shield. Organizations 
voluntarily self-certify to the Privacy Shield and, upon certification, 
the commitments the organization has made to comply with the Privacy 
Shield become legally enforceable under U.S. law. Organizations that 
self-certify to the Privacy Shield commit to binding arbitration of 
residual claims if the individual chooses to exercise that option. 
Under the arbitration option, a Privacy Shield Panel (consisting of one 
or three arbitrators, as agreed by the parties) has the authority to 
impose individual-specific, non-monetary equitable relief (such as 
access, correction, deletion, or return of the individual's data in 
question) necessary to remedy the violation of the Privacy Shield only 
with respect to the individual. The parties will select the arbitrators 
from the list of arbitrators described below.
    The DOC and the European Commission seek to develop a list of at 
least 20 arbitrators. To be eligible for inclusion on the list, 
applicants must be admitted to practice law in the United States and 
have expertise in both U.S. privacy law and EU data protection law. 
Applicants shall not be subject to any instructions from, or be 
affiliated with, any Privacy Shield organization, or the U.S., EU, or 
any EU Member State or any other governmental authority, public 
authority or enforcement authority.
