By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Facebook and Instagram could face a ban in Europe following a ruling by Ireland’s data privacy regulator, Reuters report.
The Data Protection Commission (DPC) which is the lead regulator of Meta and other large technology companies, issued a provisional order in 2020 to block the mechanism Meta uses to transfer data on EU users to the United States citing surveillance concerns.
After that order was issued, the European Union and the United States announced a preliminary data transfer deal.
However, on Thursday, the DPC informed counterparts of a draft of the final decision. Though the content of the draft has not been released, Meta has warned that a stop will leave the company unable to offer significant services such as Facebook and Instagram in Europe.
“This draft decision, which is subject to review by European Data Protection Authorities, relates to a conflict of EU and U.S. law which is in the process of being resolved,” a Meta spokesperson said regarding the Irish order.
