La demande est partiellement réussie.

Dear European Parliament,

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:

I request all reports, correspondence, and memorandum on the Privacy Shield framework. The date range for this request is from October 1, 2015 to the February 17, 2017.

I request to be provided these records free of charge, because it is in the public interest to release these records. If any part of this request is denied, I request to be informed of the decision and the reason why.

Thank you,

Dear Ms Tackett,

 

Following the invalidation of the 2000 Safe Harbour decision by the Court
of Justice of the European Union in a ruling from 6 October 2015 (Schrems
case), the Commission started negotiations with the U.S. authorities
towards a new framework. After the announcement of a political agreement
on a ‘EU-US Privacy Shield’ (2 February 2016), the Commission published a
draft “Adequacy decision” on 29 February 2016, followed by a revised
Adequacy decision on EU-US Privacy Shield (July 2016). You find a summary
of Parliament's and Commission's dealings on the issue on Parliament's
website which also provides access to relevant documents:
[1]http://www.europarl.europa.eu/legislativ...
. Among its initiatives Parliament hosted a public hearing on the topic on
17 March 2016, for which you may also find the reference on the website
referred to.
