Advocate General Bot opinion on Max Schrems case

Today, in case Case C-362/14 Maximillian Schrems v Data Protection Commissioner, Advocate General Yves Bot takes the view that the existence of a Commission decision finding that a third country ensures an adequate level of protection of the personal data transferred cannot eliminate or even reduce the national supervisory authorities’ powers under the directive on the processing of personal data. He considers furthermore that the Commission decision is invalid.
