EU: New agreement reached with the United States on air passenger data exchange

On 16 October, the Council of the European Union (EU) adopted a decision on an interim agreement with the US to continue transferring airline passenger data to the US administration. This follows a ruling by the Court of Justice of the European Communities in May, which annulled the EU Council decision approving the 2004 Agreement challenged by the European Parliament as violating European rules on data protection. The interim agreement is valid until 31 July 2007.
