European Parliament hearing on PNR's
I'm off to Brussels for this hearing on Monday (agenda , additional background documents ) on the transfer of passenger name record (PNR) data from the European union to the USA, and for a meeting of the "Article 29 Working Party" of E.U. national data protection authorities on the same topics.
I hope to be able to raise some of the issues I've written about here , here , and here related to the lack of adequate protection (against access by the government, commercial misuse and redisclousure, and further transfers to other countries) for PNR data transferred to commercial entities in the USA, in routine and flagrant violation of the EU Data Protection Directive and the privacy, notice, and consent requirements of the EU Code of Conduct for CRS's.
Here's my prepared statement for the meetings.Link | Posted by Edward on Friday, 23 March 2007, 19:23 ( 7:23 PM)
