Adecuación de Terceros Países

The Council and the European Parliament have given the Commission the power to determine, on the basis of Article 25(6) of directive 95/46/EC whether a third country ensures an adequate level of protection by reason of its domestic law or of the international commitments it has entered into. The adoption of a (comitology) Commission decision based on Article 25.6 of the Directive involves:

  • A proposal from the Commission,
  • an opinion of the group of the national data protection commissioners (Article 29 working party)
  • An opinion of the Article 31 Management committee delivered by a qualified majority of Member States.
  • A thirty-day right of scrutiny for the European Parliament, to check if the Commission has used its executing powers correctly. The European Parlement may, if it considers it appropriate, issue a recommendation.
  • The adoption of the decision by the College of Commissioners
