In a game-changing decision in Data Protection Commissioner v. Facebook Ireland Limited, Max Schrems (C-311/18, the Schrems II Case), the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) declared the Commission Implementing Decision 2016/1250 (the Privacy Shield Decision) invalid as it fails to protect people’s rights to privacy, data protection and access to remedy. On the other hand, the CJEU declared that examination of Decision 2010/87 on Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs Decision) in the light of the Charter of Fundamental Rights (the Charter) has disclosed nothing to affect the validity of that decision, however questions their validity in the USA and other third countries. The impact on businesses operating in a global market cannot be underestimated.
