Watchlist Screening & Safe Harbor

Randy Gosda

The implications of data privacy laws that are in conflict between the United States and Sweden, and the recent decision by the European Court of Justice (ECJ) to invalidate the Safe Harbor Framework, were the topics discussed during an AmCham Sweden Business After Hours program on December 16.

Hosted by AmCham Sweden member DLA Nordic, Henrik Fallgren, Director of Group Trade Compliance within the Ericsson Group, provided insights into the Watchlist Screening program that U.S. companies are obligated to participate in for screening customers, suppliers and employees against the Office of Foreign Assets Control's (OFAC) list of Specially Designated Nationals (SDNs).

In light of Safe Harbor being declared invalid, Louise Leijon, Sales Director for the Nordic region of American Express Global Business Travel, explained how her organization has implemented proprietary processes for governing data transfers of customer information for business purposes.

During a mingle that followed the program arranged by Johan Sundberg and Johan Thörn of DLA Nordic, attendees exchanged information and discussed how Watchlist Screening and Safe Harbor are being addressed by their respective companies.
