Dear Justice and Consumers,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

- All communication between the Commission's DG JUST and the United States Department of Commerce, on the subject of the EU-US data transfers, and specifically the Commission's 'modernized' Standard Contractual Clauses and a potential new EU-US data transfer accord to replace the now-defunct Privacy Shield. This could include but is not limited to, e-mails, text messages, basis documents, memos or drafts.

Yours faithfully,

Samuel Stolton

Dear Justice and Consumers,

By law, I should have received a response to my request by December 8, 2020. Accordingly, I would appreciate it if my enquiry could be dealt with in a timely manner.
