International Agreements

International Agreements

As data flows digitally across borders, it essential that the protection of fundamental rights is ensured.  In our role as advisor to the EU legislator, the EDPS continues to offer his expertise on EU proposals for international agreements, including in the areas of trade, law enforcement (for instance on PNR agreements with non-EU countries) and administrative cooperation. The EDPS recommendations aim to ensure that individuals in the EU do not forfeit their rights when their personal data is transferred outside of the EU.
