Answer given by Mr Reynders
on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-005165/2020

After these authorities came to the conclusion in 2018 that there had been no occasions where they ‘had to prohibit the processing and transfer of personal data to the US(2) under the FATCA(3) regime(4) and following further exchanges with stakeholders, they are again looking into this issue at the level of the European Data Protection Board.

The Commission participates in the meetings of the Board and closely follows any developments on this file.
